Founder Talks

p>You dream of being your own boss one day? And you already have ideas how to start-up your own business? Then join the Founder Talks at the University of Mannheim.

The MCEI regularly invites young and energized entrepreneurs to talk about relevant topics every potential entrepreneur has to deal with.

The entrepreneurs, and former students of the University of Mannheim, will be more than willing to answer questions and discuss entrepreneurial topics at a get-together after their presentation. Not only students are eager to join the Founder Talks, but also other founders enjoy hearing about the exciting stories of their entrepreneurial colleagues. In addition, the event may be joined by potential investors who are looking for inspiring new projects to finance. For any further questions regarding entrepreneurial activities, members of the MCEI will be happy to answer questions at the Founder Talks.

Mannheim Founder Talks - more than just lectures.
