Student Business Ventures
Witten/Herdecke University is an entrepreneurial university and autonomous in all relevant decisions concerning budget, organization, staff, strategy, capacity building, recruitment of students and employees, as well as its financial position.
Our students are encouraged to develop entrepreneurial qualities. The prize-winning start-up factory GründerWerkstatt stimulates enterprising spirit in economics students right from the start. They learn to be self dependent and act as part of a team. The focus is on responsibility, initiative, creative will and entrepreneurial spirit.
UW/H students are dedicated and prepared to take charge. Here are some examples of innovative business ideas successfully realized by Witten students.
In addition to the above start-ups founded by UW/H students there is an impressive number of businesses designed, established and managed by graduates of Witten/Herdecke University.
