FAU Sandbox is a program offered by the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, providing funding for student-initiated business and startup ideas.

You have a business idea but do not have the funds and/or are scared to take the first step?

Or you are currently working on your business idea but need some more support?

Then the FAU Sandbox innovation fund will help boost your idea:

  • 10 teams will be funded with max. 2,000€ each for their business and startup ideas.
  • Students and members from all faculties of the FAU can apply.
  • Teams will be supported with workshops, mentored by industry/ university partners, can take part in networking events and will have access to co-working spaces.
  • By taking part in the FAU Sandbox innovation fund, teams do not give up any rights to their intellectual property.

Timing: FAU Sandbox Summer 2019 program will run from the July 27 until the October 12. Applications open until July 14.

MidTerm Presentations the 6th of September. Great to see already the progress! Many thanks to partners, mentors and the support from our president Joachim Hornegger!
