Profile

The Center for Entrepreneurial and Innovative Management (CEIM) is an interdisciplinarytransfer center established at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management in 2014.

CEIM organizes the yearly HHL SpinLab Investorsday together with “SpinLab – The HHL Accelerator” which brings together founders, investors and incumbents.

SpinLab

“SpinLab – The HHL Accelerator” is an integrated part of the overall CEIM concept of HHL. Located on the creative and inspiring area of the Spinnerei Leipzig (Leipzig's cotton mill) it will be established at the beginning of 2015. It is financed by investors and its use for established companies.

Besides access to required infrastructure (co-working offices) founding and innovation teams benefit from intensive coaching and consulting as well as mentoring, from HHL’s excellent networks of investors and entrepreneurs, from supporting service providers and from the opportunities to exchange experiences internationally.

The unique idea of “SpinLab – The HHL Accelerator” is that this platform can not only be used by startups but also by established companies. The focus is on innovative, internationally scalable business ideas. The program is limited to a maximum of 6 months at no charge and with no equity holding. Moreover, there is the opportunity of using additional other office spaces on Leipzig’s cotton mill to foster the further growth of the company.
