Nurturing Innovation: The Dynamic Intersection of Education and Entrepreneurship

We obviously need to step up our game if we want to enable the founders of tomorrow.

We gathered a group of leading education-focused entrepreneurs with hands-on experience and a deep passion for growing the next generation of startup founders to discuss what education can do to help them succeed and which role schools and universities have to play.

Our panel of experts includes some of Germany’s top voices:

  • Verena Pausder, an angel investor and soon head of the German startup association, is focused on education as a driver for entrepreneurship.
  • Benedikt Kurz, founder of Knowunity, the fastest-growing EdTech app in Europe.
  • Yvonne Wende, the Berlin Senate’s Entrepreneur of the Year, is an educator and founder of the Berlin Metropolitan School and the Berlin Cosmopolitan School.
  • René Mauer is a professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at ESCP Business School and academic director of the specialized Executive Master in Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurial Leadership (EMDIEL).
