With JumpStart, we offer those interested in founding a startup an entry point to turn their early ideas into first prototypes. Founders use our state-of-the-art prototyping labs and are supported in the development of their prototypes by accompanying coaching.
In order to enable the development of technically complex ideas, we network founders with experienced partners from business and research and initiate startup cooperations at a very early stage. The JumpStart format acts as an enabler in the Berlin innovation ecosystem and promotes the co-creative development of forward-looking innovations.

For potential startup founders

You have a start-up idea, but you don’t have the space and the right tools to develop the prototype? Various machines and tools such as 3D printers, laser cutters and 3D milling machines are available to you in our prototyping labs. For robotics applications, we offer special electronics & tools and even your own test robot. Together with our partner Siemens Energy, we also provide a modern VR / AR lab with a corresponding programming environment for developing immersive applications. In the Mobile Device Lab you will also find a variety of different end-user devices (tablets, smartphones, smartwatches) to carry out live tests for your mobile app.

Your solution is technically complex and you need special resources for prototype development? We network you with suitable cooperation partners from industry & research and guide your startup project to a real JUMP START!
