In the future, founders of start-ups, big companies, scientists, artists – and what has been unique until now – will occupy the city of Munich on an area of 11,000 square meters. Together they want to work under one roof on ideas for the city of the future, a “smart city”.
Management and companies work together
In the so-called “Munich Urban Collab”, for example, the founder of a sustainable e-bike engine sits next to the Munich city administration and transport company MVG Munich. You can develop new mobility concepts, for example the prototype of a standard e-bike charging socket, says founder Fabian Reuter. This is exactly why he moved to the startup hub with his startup Fazua. Large companies such as SAP, Siemens, BMW and Infineon are also involved as partners.
The cost of the building is 30 million euros. The startup network UnternehmerTUM has incurred the costs of construction and operation. The city of Munich offers the location in the immediate vicinity of the university on a long lease. In the coming years, innovations on the topics of construction, climate protection, sustainability and mobility will be generated here.
