Welcome to the

Who are we?

With HHL DIGITAL SPACE, the HHL – Leipzig Graduate School of Management provides a platform to promote early-stage digital business models. In addition, established companies should get supported in meeting the challenges of digitisation. With new premises on the HHL campus in Leipzig, physical space is being created where founders, entrepreneurs, students, scientists, and society can discuss and try out the topic of entrepreneurship and digitization.

What do we do?

At the center of the start-up support is a structured 12-week program in which founders validate an idea concerning the “problem-solution fit”. Attendees will work out the areas of the market, business model, and technology in a structured and detailed manner. Within the framework of these free “batches”, founders receive support from experts primarily in the area of entrepreneurship and the HHL network. On a final Demo Day, attendees have the special opportunity to present a pitch to investors, business angels, and experts. During the time of the incubation program, DIGITAL SPACE uses an international network to help find missing co-founders for future start-up teams in order to strengthen the basis for the company foundation.

What’s in it for you?
