Collaborate on a start-up or spin-off

Collaborating with the university on a start-up or spin-off can give your business that extra edge. 

We can offer your several different opportunities. 

Be a part of a spin-off

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

SDU founded Science Ventures Denmark A/S, which is a 100%-owned subsidiary of the university. Science Ventures Denmark enters into spin-offs on behalf of SDU.

The university transfers ownership of the relevant intellectual property rights to Science Ventures Denmark, which then licenses the rights to the spin-off company. 

Science Ventures Denmark has over 10 years of experience with spin-offs. Over 30 companies have been created via the use of this business model. 

Collaborate with student start-ups

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
