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

HIGHEST is the innovation and founding centre at Technische Universität Darmstadt. Our vision is to lead start-ups in the fields of high-tech and digitization to success.

To this end, we offer a wide range of support services: We help young founders to develop their business models and to find investors and suitable funding programmes. With our Fablab and the Open Digital Lab, we provide students, scientists and companies with digital technologies in areas such as cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and 3D printing.

The idea behind it? -to promote innovations and start-ups.

This is the same idea we pursue with our Teaching 2020 vision: By 2020, all students at the TU Darmstadt should have the opportunity to study subjects from the fields of entrepreneurship, foundation and innovation.

In addition, HIGHEST is also a networking platform with a very large reach in the field of start-ups: for example, at our last Startup & Innovation Day we had almost 1000 visitors from business, science and politics. Our Gründerstammtisch also regularly report “full house”, just like our bi-annual club evening for our HIGHEST-Club 1877 members. With our offerings, we are among the top start-up universities in Germany.
