From the Business Plan Competition to exciting guest lectures

Every year exciting events are offered for HPI founder teams and those interested in a startup in cooperation with well-known partners from industry and science.

From lecture hall to company hall

Supplementing our lecture IT-Entrepreneurship are numerous possibilities that can accompany students with their ideas to founding a company. The Startup Bootcamp is a 3-day event, at which over 50 students from different universities go together through the ups and downs that come along with bringing forth a new startup idea. At the annual HPI Business Plan Competition teams can iterate their business model through three feedbackrounds and inputsessions, accompanied by coaches and have the opportunity to win a first funding. Next to these big events are irregular workshops and talks called XPERT Workshops. Furthermore, the student-driven HPI Connect Club offers the HPI Startup Talks.
