HPI E-School talk: “Innovation in times of Corona“

The corona pandemic is ubiquitous and affects all parts of our daily lives. Despite this, innovation has by no means gone into hibernation but is in fact more important than ever. In the past we saw the emergence of ideas such as AirBnB or Square come out of other crises and take on a life of their own. At the HPI School of Entrepreneurship, we deal with innovative ideas on a daily basis, hence asked ourselves what innovation opportunities might arise from the current situation.

The #WirVsVirus-Hackathon, launched by the Federal Government, encourages out-of-the-box thinking and the development of innovative ideas. The objective is to support our solidarity and to come out of the COVID-19 situation stronger than ever.  On the government’s platform, 28,361 people worked on over 1,500 solutions in just 48 hours.

One of the top 20 ideas that emerged from this hackathon is #liquidebleiben. The project team provides immediate assistance to companies so that they can safeguard their existence. With the help of #liquidebleiben the number of queries in exchanges with banks and authorities can be reduced and the disbursement of funds to those affected will be facilitated faster. 

The event "Innovation in times of Corona"

In order to learn and discuss first-hand how an extraordinary situation like this can arise new ideas, we have invited the #liquidebleiben team to give a presentation about their experiences during the past weeks.

Among other things, they will talk about how their idea was born, how the team came together, how they experienced the hackathon and, of course, their plans for the future. This event is of interest to everyone who wants to know how a crisis can become an opportunity.
