Getting a start-up off the ground in the field of robotics is exceptional. The teams face a variety of challenges that are new in the German start-up landscape. Just think of the complex hardware and its necessary matching software. With robo.innovate, we close this gap and offer access to a unique ecosystem.

There was always a gap between the theoretical engineering education of universities and the practical ability to build real world applications. The I.MDL course is bridging both worlds – enabling our students to fearlessly conceive and realize their own visions.

The exclusive access to the RoboSpace and MakerSpace workshops at Munich Urban Colab has allowed us to iteratively develop multiple functional prototypes. We are glad to be part of robo.innovate and its network.

Co-Founder Angsa Robotics, start-up
Thanks to the expertise and the network of the robo.innovate team, we were able to concentrate even more on our deep technology development. In particular, the domain-specific consulting was a great help in our start-up process, which is unique in the start-up ecosystem in Bavaria!

Robots are at the top of the class in physical motion products. Complex hardware meets complex software, high prototyping and scaling costs require perfect product market fit. The robo.innovate network is therefore essential to exchange ideas and to learn from each other as we are facing the same challenge.

If I had to describe the master-course I.MDL in three words, it would be practical learning, challenging, fun team experience. The course taught me a lot: on hardware and on software, in theory and in practice, from knowledgeable teachers and inspiring peers.
