Founder Talks

You want to learn more about what it means to become an entrepreneur or have ideas to start your own business? Then join the MCEI Founder Talk and learn from distinguished entrepreneurs about their entrepreneurial journey.

The MCEI regularly invites well-known entrepreneurs to talk about their personal experiences and relevant topics every potential entrepreneur has to deal with. You can get inspired, learn from their mistakes, and celebrate their successes. The entrepreneurs, often University of Mannheim alumni, will be more than willing to answer your questions and usually discuss individual questions after their talks while enjoying some drinks. Founder Talks are ideal to broaden your network, to gain access to investors in general or angel rounds in particular and grant you the opportunity to get in touch with exciting job opportunities in innovative companies.
