WHU Incubator will cater for students of all programs of the WHU-Otto Beisheim School of Management. To our events we invite entrepreneurs or business angels – to most we maintain close or personal ties - that thanks to the intimate WHU atmosphere share more in depth and concretes insides from their work than they would at conferences and fairs. This proves to be extremely valuable for young teams.
Internally at WHU, the incubator is well connected and gets supported by all departments such as Career Services, where for instant we collaborate for the WHU Start-Up Career Day.
As part of the incubation program, there are pitching days held on campus in front of a jury of business angels and venture capitalists that can be a starting point for a seed financing round for the venture and provide the teams with valuable feedback. Other events include start-up tours to entrepreneurial hubs such as Berlin to visit start-ups and experience the entrepreneurial spirit. The various occasions to get in contact and discuss own ideas with entrepreneurs and business angels present a significant advantages when starting your own business.
