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).

The IFE is the contact partner for the EXIST program of the BMWi. However, before you contact us about an EXIST stipend, please carefully read the conditions.
