For the sixth time, the Gründungsradar compares the support of start-ups at German institutions of higher education (HEIs) in terms of quality and quantity. HEIs are key players regarding start-ups and innovation. This edition uses the same methodology and indicator set as the previous survey in 2020, thus allowing time comparisons between the surveys. The survey includes 196 higher education institutions which place significance on start-up support (184 in 2020). The Gründungsradar thus provides a valid data basis for start-up activity and start-up support at German HEIs.
