to the Institute for Entrepreneurship!

The Institute for Entrepreneurship (ENT) has been an integral part of the Johannes Kepler University Linz since October 2003. In addition to conducting international, predominantly empirical entrepreneurship research, our innovative educational formats provide students with an opportunity to experience entrepreneurship during their studies. Professional experts in the field also teach courses in entrepreneurship, passing their expertise on to a new generation.

The institute's website provides information about our classes, our main research areas, information for those interested in creating a company, and information about our partners.
