This course is our format for Master students to foster startup growth, entrepreneurial culture and to advance the startup ecosystem at and around the University of Mannheim. With their expertise, students support startups in improving their products, services, and business models and help them in being more competitive. In this course you will work with existing companies and actively contribute to their well-being. Thus, high dedication, willingness to take over responsibilities and professionalism are a prerequisite. In MAN 633 there are two tracks: One for students who have no startup project yet and one for students (individual or founding team) who work on their own advanced startup project.
