The Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) awards a start-up label to selected, primarily technology-oriented TU companies. The requirements for the use of the StartUp label are that the user is a foundation with know-how from the TUB and that the founders, students, graduates, employees or alumni of the TUB are the TUB. The business idea and business plan must be sound and promising, and the founding team must demonstrate entrepreneurial skills.


As a spin-off of the Technical University from science and research, Virtenio GmbH would be awarded with its business idea and business plan. Virtenio GmbH is especially indebted to the Technical University and in particular to the start-up service.
