Welcome to the Institute for Entrepreneurship

The Institute for Entrepreneurship (IFE) of the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences is a national and international research, consulting, and continuing education institution.

The focus of the research work is on topics related to start-ups in Germany and abroad and includes issues concerning consulting for small and medium-sized businesses and start-ups. One focus area lies in the development of curricula for entrepreneur training. Other focus areas include continuing education and consulting for start-ups. The IFE works closely together with different cooperation partners.

There are regular office hours for start-up-related concerns of university members (students, alumni, staff).
