This year, Prof. Voigt was given the challenging task to join the Jury of the Road to START Summit 2021. The charitable student initiative START fosters start-ups and promotes entrepreneurial skills, which our chair is always happy to support. During the Road to START Summit 10 start-ups were able to present their business idea to the jury members Jennifer Reinz-Zettler (Head of Mobility at Bayern Innovativ), Tobias Bäumler (COO of Vitas) and Prof. Voigt.

The winner was the MARCO PARCO, having impressed with its app for a fast and efficient search for parking spaces and thus meets the idea of sharing economy. The company now has the chance to pitch their idea to investors in St. Gallen and to promote their company. Second and third place went to the companies ANAMOS and RESQ. But all 10 teams gave us a convincing and enthusiastic presentations.

Congratulations to the winners and many thanks to the organizers for this event!
