Our Support

The Scholarships

Our scholarship programs support founders who have an advanced startup concept and/or prototype. Both financially and with an excellent infrastructure, first-class coaching and consulting sessions and a supportive environment.

The aim of the scholarship is the establishment and launch of the company. As lean Incubator we are looking for founders that are striving for continuous improvement and are user centric oriented.


Research to business

Exist Startup Grant

The Startup Incubator Berlin supports students, graduates and scientists, who have innovative technological start-up projects, in applying for an EXIST Business Start-up Grant.

The grant provides financial support to help startups to implement their ideas both technically and entrepreneurially, and to prepare for a successful entry into the market. The teams are supported through funding of living expenses, material resources for the project, and comprehensive coaching.


Startup Support for Women

Exist Startup Grant

With the EXIST Women scholarship, women interested in starting a business or with a startup affinity receive the opportunity to successfully familiarize themselves with the topics of becoming founders and being self-employed. The aim is to increase the proportion of female graduates, scientists, students and women with professional qualifications who are founding a startup.

The female founders are supported financially and receive access to coaching, mentoring as well as the infrastructure (co-working space, workshop, etc.) and the workshop program of the Startup Incubator Berlin.


The Prototyping Scholarship


The Berlin Startup Scholarship supports founders who have an initial startup concept and are in the process of preparing to launch. The aim of the scholarship is the foundation and launch of the company.
In addition to financial support, each scholarship includes the use of the infrastructure of the Startup Incubator Berlin and the HWR Berlin. The scholarship furthermore includes support through our internal coaching team, our pool of external advisors, our scientific mentors from the HWR Berlin and from our business network.
