Since 2003, we have brought together inventors, creatives and enterprising people from a wide range of academic disciplines, united behind a shared passion for entrepreneurship.

Our mission is to connect AAU students, researchers and graduates to both solo and collaborative entrepreneurship through education, training, and management, with the explicit goal of boosting innovation, creativity and startup activities across AAU. 

Each semester, we provide educational opportunities through guest speakers, workshops, and several different programs aimed at increasing startup skills and competences across AAU. In addition to consultancy work, we also host a variety of social, networking and career events.


What we offer

Business Developers

When you are part of the AAU Start-Up Program, you will be assigned your own business developer, who will help guide you through the process of starting your own business. The business developers are a team of experienced entrepreneurs available to the residents of the AAU Inkubator.

The greatest asset for any start-up is networking. Networking grants access to tacid knowledge that can otherwise be difficult to obtain for a new business adventurer. At the inkubator, networking becomes natural and easy. Through our social and educational events, the network also extends beyond the inkubator.



Your start-up can be boosted by working with a mentor from a relevant industry or with relevant knowledge. To gain a mentor, please contact a SEA Business Developer. This service is launched November 2017 and the mentor team consists of highly professional individuals with unique competences. Meet the mentors here!


Venture CUP

Participants of the Start-up Program are encouraged to participate in the Venture Cup, and the business developers will help you improve your chances of winning the competition. Read more about Venture Cup here!
