Univations GmbH is your partner in the fields of entrepreneurship, innovation management and knowledge and technology transfer. We have been successfully implementing projects in these areas since 2006, advising start-ups, companies and public institutions on the development of sustainable business models and concepts.


Univations supports start-ups in the development of business models, the preparation of business plans, in market analyses as well as in the application for subsidies and in the acquisition of capital. Many of the start-ups advised by Univations have successfully established themselves in the market.


Univations supports SMEs to remain competitive. SMEs generally do not carry out sustainable research and development work. Therefore, new innovations must be quickly integrated into companies and internal processes must be optimised.

Public institutions

Univations is an internationally recognized management consultancy agency. We have developed unique projects for the region of Saxony-Anhalt, the federal government, as well as the European Union. We are also a reliable cooperation partner in many third-party projects. Moreover, we are supporting public-sector entities with development, procurement, and implementation of projects.

Entrepreneurship and start-ups are the cornerstones of our prosperity. Start-ups often create high-quality jobs and ensure innovation and growth. That is why we in Saxony-Anhalt rely on an attractive funding environment and start-up-friendly structures. Univations enriches start-up support with projects such as the futurego school competition, the Investforum start-up service and the online portal hier-we-go.de. Univations is a strong partner in the start-up state of Saxony-Anhalt.

Participant of the student competition futurego

Magda Riede

For a long time I had been looking for a project that was explicitly aimed at students. I found it with futurego at Univations. The project helped me a lot to understand the different tasks/competence areas that are important for a start-up and to deal with them. This has helped me and especially my project a lot.
