Support for foundersTechUp is the department's own organisational unit that generally is also open to interested parties of other departments. TechUp draws attention on entrepreneurship and start-ups as an alternative to "conventional careers". The contents and information are communicated via lectures, competitions and "founders' days". In addition, TechUp is setting up a network of active entrepreneurship ambassadors at the departments of the University of Paderborn, which will then act as multipliers in turn. This also includes measures related to start-up success.
