The mission of the Leuphana Entrepreneurship Hub is to fulfill the university's commitment to action-based learning by applying an 'inclusive' approach: all faculties, all students, whether you are a founder and want to create your own business, an intrapreneur, who acts like an entrepreneur within a larger organization or an external company who is looking to cooperate with the university. The Entrepreneurship Hub is meeting point for all stakeholders in entrepreneurial matters and works very closely with all of Leuphana's departements to foster entrepreneurial thinking within the fields of teaching, research, life-long learning and others.
