Collaborate on a start-up or spin-out

Be a part of a spin-out

Every year SDU founds a number of new companies—so-called spin-outs—for the development and maturation of a specific technology. A spin-out is an independent legal entity, where the owners can be outside investors, companies, researchers or any combination of the above.


Give your business that extra edge - collaborate with SDU on a start-up or spin-out 

At SDU Entrepreneurship Labs, your business will find a growing number of start-ups that are receptive to collaborating with business. 

The easiest way to meet with a student start-up is to participate in Company Meetup. For a few days, you swap out your corporate office for a school desk in Startup Station. 

This gives you the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with students. 

We also offer more formal collaboration between business and start-ups at the SpinIN Project
