The Kitchen has strong ties to our surrounding community. We aim to be a place where innovation and collaboration go hand in hand.

Private and public partnerships

Collaboration with the private and public sector in Aarhus is a key element at The Kitchen, and startups in our hub can participate in open desk advisory sessions with our professional partners every month.

We also have a large network of investors – you can meet them at our funding events Capital Connect.


Many organizations and companies in Aarhus are supporting startups on their journey, and The Kitchen is part of this booming startup ecosystem.

One of our partners is The Link, which was founded by Aarhus University, Aarhus Municipality and the Central Denmark Region to create ideal growth frameworks for entrepreneurship in Aarhus. The Link runs the platform Startup Aarhus.

Startup hubs

Besides The Kitchen, a number of departments at Aarhus University have their own hubs for entrepreneurship.

At these local hubs, you can get expert knowledge and help within your specific study or field of research.

You are more than welcome to use both your local hub and The Kitchen.


For students at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
