EXIST works with around 200 universities and start-up networks throughout Germany. In order to strengthen the exchange of ideas and good practice approaches in start-up consulting at universities, EXIST workshops are held twice a year. They serve as a joint exchange of university representatives with experts, the BMWK and the Project Management Organisation Jülich. The EXIST Workshop @ KIT: "Success Factors in Start-up Support (Best Practices)" took place from 12 to 13 October 2022 in Karlsruhe. The workshop focused on "Success Factors in Start-up Support (Best Practices)", with presentations and working groups working together to identify the factors that have a significant impact on the quality and success of start-up support. Sessions on other topics and the future of EXIST (EXIST Women, input on the topic of "Social Entrepreneurship", etc.) were also on the programme. And networking was not to be neglected at a joint evening event. It's a people business. The workshop was aimed at all universities in the EXIST community.
