Munich and its relevant ecosystem players join forces to support young entrepreneurs in pursuit of creating the next generation of high growth companies that solve pressing global challenges. In cooperation with the city of Munich, leading global industry players, consultancy firms, local entrepreneurship centers, research labs, investors, as well as relevant players from the public sector and politics, the three top universities of Munich are creating a unique international hub in Munich to support tech-based entrepreneurship tackling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The LMU IEC Impact Readiness Program aligns with the Munich Global Impact Sprint, an initiative led by the three Munich based universities Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich, and Technical University of Munich (TUM). The Munich Global Impact Sprint aims to be a key hub for innovation and entrepreneurship in the regional Munich ecosystem.
The universities are supported by their respective innovation and entrepreneurship centers: Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship (SCE), LMU Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center (LMU IEC), and UnternehmerTUM.

The universities are committed to partnering with other higher education institutions worldwide to strengthen Munich’s position as a key player in the international entrepreneurial ecosystem. The LMU IEC Impact Readiness Program and the Munich Global Impact Sprint are funded and supported by the EXIST-Potentials program of Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).

In our definition IMPACT is the effectiveness of an organization in fulfilling its mission that has meaningful consequences for all stakeholders by creating economic, social and ecological value.
