Welcome to our project, Werkhaus Inclusion! Here, you can collaborate, experiment, and innovate alongside others—for yourself, for others and for our world.

Werkhaus is…

…your opportunity to try out something new! A business, an organization, a better perspective for you, for others, for our world. Explore yourself and your idea – first small, then big. And when you’re ready, get started with the support of all of us!

The Werkhaus offers you a secure and inspiring entry into the world of entrepreneurship. With exciting workshops, multilingual consulting, intensive one-on-one coaching, active support from our network, and a flexible workspace in our creative coworking space, we aim to support you and your startup idea! Take a look at our program! The Werkhaus Start Up Lab is aimed at everyone who wants to start something or become self-employed.

The Werkhaus offer was made possible only through the energetic and financial support of many. It requires sharp ideas, helping hands, valuable advice, open ears, supporters and first users or customers. See who’s already involved and even better: join in yourself! Do you have questions for us? Contact us! We’re happy to receive your message!
