Spin-offs & Startups
The following list is a selection of current and former start-up projects which emerged at Leibniz Universität Hannover:
-Joy in learning, confident in every exam and good grades
Individual Tutoring has made it its mission to offer help to young people by encouraging the best possible from each student. With our team, we not only create learning successes but also bring back the joy of learning. In this way, we create perspectives together.
MIP Technology GmbH
-Robust ID designed for Industry
We have a vision of a magnetic data storage technology tailored to industrial applications and consumer products, the Magnetic Information Platform, or MIP for short. The advantages over competing technologies such as barcodes and RFID are the readability through metallic layers and the high temperature and chemical resistance. At the same time, the ID tag is thin and can be integrated flexibly. We will advance I.4.0 with our ID.
-The digital contact for medical technology
Every doctor can find the best medical technology online with Medizinio - that is our vision! With the medizinio.de and medizintechnikmarkt.de portals, we offer an online platform where doctors can find out about medical technology and enquire about it directly. We then pass the enquiry on to two qualified partners who send the doctor an offer. That makes it possible to compare offers in this non-transparent market, where sums in the 5- or 6-digit range are quickly involved. Also, used equipment can be sold to dealers on our marketplace.
-Storage Solution for the Energy Revolution
Hypnetic develops a cost-effective, efficient and sustainable energy storage solution for industrial applications. With self-consumption & feed-in optimisation, peak load capping, control power and flicker compensation, companies can reduce their energy costs, receive additional remuneration, increase their security & quality of supply and improve their ecological balance.
-Turning Waste into Purpose
We at eco:fibr have developed an environmentally friendly process to produce pulp from the plant waste of pineapple cultivation. The plant residues pose a significant problem for farmers, as they are difficult to compost and are therefore often disposed of with chemicals or fire. We thus offer the paper industry a sustainable alternative to the conventional pulp.
-Wind energy - efficient and decentralised
Rooftop Energy develops and produces a vertical wind turbine for households, businesses and the public sector. Due to its small size, low noise level and high efficiency, the vertical Helix wind turbine is a genuine alternative to solar panels or other vertical wind turbines in urban areas. Due to the improved efficiencies and service life, Rooftop Energy brings about a significant increase in economic efficiency.
-architecture city design
studiomauer has been active as an idealistic office and ongoing experiment since 2019. Inspired by friends, young makers, fine details and complex spatial contexts in the city, architecture and society, we want to participate in shaping our collective future. At studiomauer, five heads run hot, discuss with each other, produce new possibilities, question tasks and offer versatile approaches to solutions. As a young collective, we are enthusiastic problem solvers, researchers of unconventional ideas and good partners in projects. We make architecture, city, design. Feel free to take a look!
