Nürtin­gen — Menold Bezler has advi­sed Nürtin­­gen-Geis­­lin­­gen Univer­sity (HfWU) on the estab­lish­ment of the non-profit Zukunft.Gründen — Future.Hub for Entre­pre­neur­ship & Inno­va­tion GmbH (ZuG), a plat­form for sustainable busi­ness start-ups.

ZuG promo­tes a sustainable start-up culture, for exam­ple through lectures on entre­pre­neur­ship, scho­lar­ships for promi­sing start-up projects and the promo­tion of start-up coope­ra­tion programs for SMEs. The initia­tive, which was previously supported by the Fede­ral Minis­try of Econo­mics, has now been spun off. In order to estab­lish and finance new joint ventures, ZuG works with other compa­nies via its newly foun­ded subsi­diary Zukunft.Gründen — Venture Studio for Entre­pre­neur­ship & Inno­va­tion GmbH and connects foun­ders with busi­ness angels.

The law firm advi­sed HfWU on corpo­rate and contrac­tual issues rela­ting to the estab­lish­ment of ZuG and the estab­lish­ment of the ZuG subsidiary.
