Supporting student entrepreneurship

Why student entrepreneurship?

We help student startups develop products & services that create value for people & society.

The Startup Programme is a startup incubator for students at the IT University of Copenhagen. The incubator is managed by ITU Business Development A/S, a private limited company owned entirely by the IT University of Copenhagen. Bringing the entrepreneurial community together with more focus coupled with the university support has enabled us to launch this programme for students.


The mission of the Startup Programme is to provide guidance and knowledge to students. This leads to teams creating new technology startups with innovative concepts. We are a launchpad for students into the wider entrepreneurial ecosystem, helping teams prepare for the next stages of startup growth.

The Startup Programme was instrumental in getting our company from an idea to an early business: very useful legal counsel, capital injections and overall advice. ITU-BD is a great advantage for students’ startups as it brings experience which is critical to creating a profitable company.

Anders Nygaard
ITU Business Development's Startup Programme was vital in the very early stages of our startup journey. They helped consider important elements in relation to our business model and gave us tools to guide us through bumps and challenges along the way. In the later stages, they made our further development possible by investing 25.000 DKK in the company. Being part of the shared office facilities provided by ITU BD enabled a valuable network of other entrepreneurs.
