Campus Founders


We are Campus Founders, the entrepreneurship and innovation center in Heilbronn. We shape the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators with a sustainable and open mindset. Our passion is to spread the spirit of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial culture and create a home for all players in the startup and innovation ecosystem in one of the most economically strong and attractive regions in Europe.

Campus Founders are the MINDSET-SCHMIEDE for entrepreneurial acting people. Our engagement combines practical knowledge, advanced methods and an international network. Our mission is to support energetic and passionate creators and guide them through their entrepreneurial journey. We provide an inspirational and creative environment, in which they develop and achieve a sustainable entrepreneurial impact.

We are a startup ourselves and as such, we strive to build a strong team, great company culture, and an organization that we all love to work for. Our core philosophy is people over process and values over rules. Therefore, it is very important for us that we provide context to our team members, are very authentic and transparent, and share the same values.

What we offer

We offer comprehensive programs for:

  • Entrepreneurial talent and students (Academic Lab),
  • Founders and start-up teams (Start-up Lab),
  • Innovation and personnel managers, intrapreneurs and other corporate representatives (Corporate Lab).

We are building a community that will last, a community that stands for exchange, support and a genuine business network.

We offer various formats, but all of them focus on brokering corporate action and a corporate mindset as well as innovative methodological knowledge. Our long-term goal is to help successful start-ups grow. We are with you every step of the entrepreneurial journey – starting with inspiration and (not) ending with real business solutions.
