It’s a wrap! For the fifth year in a row, the Chair of Industrial Management successfully hosted the seminar “Businessplanseminar – Local Heroes Edition”, where 12 bachelor and master students had the chance to work on real business challenges from three local start-ups. Together with the three business partners INVRTUAL (corporate Metaverse solutions), InsiderPie (digital finance tool) and cryptolight (blockchain solutions), the students worked on different challenges in the areas of marketing and sales.

On January 19th, the three student groups presented the results of their business challenges to Prof. Dr. Kai-Ingo Voigt, Lauren Anne Mackintosh and the business partners. The entire audience was highly impressed by how well the students were able to give creative and unique answers to complex business questions, which the students had worked on for only a couple of months in collaboration with their business partners.

We warmly thank our partners from INVRTUAL (Markus Schober, Spyridon Koustas), InsiderPie (Pierre Andreä, Dominik Straußberger) and cryptolight (Nina Tauscher) for taking part in this seminar and wish them all the best for their future!
