The School of Entrepreneurship provides formats elevating ideas and innovation to entrepreneurial activities. We focus on entrepreneurial inspiration, motivation, and education as well as on need-driven ideation, business creation and team building.
HPI offers its aspiring entrepreneurs exciting events in conjunction with partners from industry and science. These events provide the ideal framework for networking with other founders and experts from the entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Since 2010 the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) has held an annual Business Plan Competition for founders of new companies and startups from the Institute environment. Over three phases, participants receive intensive feedback to further the development of their business idea.
At the end of the competition, the best teams get the opportunity to present their business concept to a jury of experts. The jury, made up of representatives from HPI, Hasso Plattner Ventures, and external partners awards prizes of up to € 100,000.
