Student teams, teachers, and coaches—they all are what brings our educational initiative to life. We will introduce some of them to you in our newsletter. Take an exclusive look behind the scenes!
Munich Coaches in Top Form for the Critical Phase
On the way to their own business idea
They're young, competent, and committed. Both studied business administration, one in his native Bavaria, the other abroad in St. Gallen and London: Jochen Rank and Dr. Fabian Heuschele.

After the Victory … Comes the Start-up

The Dream of Owning a Business
It all started with business@school: During phase III, Niklas Guggenberger, CEO of FlowerArt GmbH, discovered his passion for building a business of his own. Since then, he has been eager to see his own ideas take shape and grow. For the development of an own business idea, he has a very specific piece of advice.
