A fellowship of the Stifterverband enabled to launch a new course series on “Entrepreneurial Diversity” at the Freie Universität Berlin and Charité. The first round, entitled “WoMenventures”, focused on women’s perspective on entrepreneurship and involved role models of successful female entrepreneurs who shared their experiences and coached the first batch of 25 students and scientists.
Imagine you have 120 Bachelor students from all kinds of disciplines who have committed themselves to learn everything about the “Principles of Business Economics” in just one semester. I have accepted this challenge in summer 2016 and designed a new course format in which students do not only learn but also experience what it takes to “do business”.
Right next to the former Berlin Wall area, Factory Berlin opened their doors in 2011 to unite startups, freelancers and cooperates striving for tech innovation. Scientists embracing the vibrant startup eco system in Berlin can also benefit from this unique community.
