Our understanding of entrepreneurship

Our vision of entrepreneurship goes beyond setting up new businesses. We understand entrepreneurship as a key competence to identify, seize and create opportunitiesthat advance society by creating value – economically, environmentally, and socially. Entrepreneurship expresses itself in the form of projects. These can include, for example, the establishment of a start-up, but also the implementation of an innovation in an existing organization. The aim of such projects is to solve practical problems and gain new insights.
