Start-up - Speed Dating

14. Feb. 2017 · 17:00-20:00

Cologne Business School, Hardefuststr. 1, 50677 Köln

Survey shows that start-ups and young entrepreneurs are more successful than founders who act on solitary basis. But does good advice have to be expensive? The hgnc-"start-up speed dating" indicates that this I not always the case!

We have invited various start-up-experts who are keen to give you feedback on your business idea. Come and meet them at the Cologne Business School’s Lounge on 14 February 2017 between 5 and 8 p.m. At this event you will also get the chance to exchange your ideas with other young entrepreneurs and maybe get to know potential co-founders.

The event will start with a "Best Practice"-presentation by Christoph Müller-Dechent who will share his experience on the founding process of FoodLoop GmbH. The succeeding "speed-dating" process will take the following course: You’ll have 5 minutes to present your business idea to the experts, for another 5 minutes you will then obtain their feedback. After this period you will go to a new desk with another expert and so on. Be part of this and save a date with start-up-experts!

Participation is free of charge, please register for the event and go to "Zur Veranstaltung anmelden" at the end of this page!

Who can participate? Students, Employee and Alumni (up to 5 years after graduation) of the hgnc e.V. member-universities. As the Cologne Business School hosts many international students, the presentation will be given in English. The subsequent "Speed-Dating" act with the experts may take place in English or German.

Also, if you are looking for Co-founders, feel free to present you and your idea in the "Founders Corner" (further information on request) during the networking subsequent to the speed-dating event.
