KIT Entrepreneurship Talks – Successful start with Dr. Hoepfner

Under the motto “founders report from real life”, the chair for Entrepreneurship and Technology Management presented the public lecture series “KIT Entrepreneurship Talks”, in which inspiring founder and entrepreneurial persons reported their founding experiences in different industries and faced the questions from the auditorium.

On October 30th, 2014, the event series started in the winter semester 2014/2015 with Dr. Friedrich Georg Hoepfner from Hoepfner Bräu (Hoepfner brewery). With about 120 guests, the “Talk” was well received. The full auditorium at our hosts’, the Technologiefabrik Karlsruhe, shows that there is great interest in the topic of company founding and that many young founders rely on the practically tested experience of successful founders.  Dr. Hoepfner reported in a vivid and charming manner on his path as a founder and business angel. He offered informative insight into his life as an entrepreneur in a manner that was very entertaining for the audience and via instructive and funny anecdotes. All guests were able to experience that Dr. Hoepfner is a passionate entrepreneur and he likes passing on his experiences to the next generation of founders.

Young founders are often faced with the challenge of having to master new tasks and make important decisions in the founding process. Due to the lack of experience, mistakes can happen and wrong decisions are made. In this situation, the exchange with experienced founders, who have made it in business, helps. The Entrepreneurship Talks are the opportunity to get tips and decision making aid from established entrepreneurs.

In this semester, you can meet founders and those interested in founding at a lively talk on four more occasions. The lecture series is presented once a month, starting at 7 pm at the Campus South of the KIT. It is open for everyone interested in the topic. After a short lecture by the guest speaker, there is time for questions and answers. At the subsequent get-together at the founding BBQ of the Center of Entrepreneurship, you can swap notes, build contacts, and inform yourself about offers for training and advice on the topic of company founding.

We are looking forward to the following speakers:

You are cordially invited to the Entrepreneurship Talks. Just come and profit from the “lessons learned” by the experienced entrepreneurs.
