HIGHEST | Home of Innovation, GrowtH, EntrepreneurShip and Technology Management

HIGHEST is the Startup and Innovation Center at Technische Universität Darmstadt. Our vision is to lead Startups in the field of high-tech and digitisation to success.

For this purpose, we offer numerous support services: this ranges from the assistance for young founders in the development of a business model and the search for investors and suitable funding programmes. With our accelerator “seTUp- program”, FabLab and the Open Digital Lab we provide digital technologies from the areas of Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and 3D-Print to students, researchers and also businesses.

The idea behind is to advance further innovations and business creations.

We are pursuing the same idea with our vision Teaching 2020: By the year 2020, all students at TU Darmstadt should have the possibility to visit subjects in the field of Entrepreneurship, Business Creation and Innovation.

In addition, HIGHEST is a network platform with a very long range on topics surrounding business creation: for example, about 1000 visitors from economics, science and politics attended our last Startup- & Innovation Day. Our regulars’ table for founders is always very well attended, as well as our club evening for our HIGHEST-Club 1877 members, which takes place twice a year. With our offers we belong to the top entrepreneurial universities in Germany.
