Entrepreneurship at WHU

The WHU start-up scene is a constant hive of activity - from Germany to America, and everywhere in between, entrepreneurial spirit and creative thinking truly make up the heart of WHU.  From students with start-up ideas at the ready, to those who haven’t entertained the idea of starting their own business, WHU has something for everybody. The entrepreneurial spirit is embedded into our very core. A mix of events scattered throughout the year reflects our entrepreneurial drive, and with seven student clubs devoted entirely to entrepreneurship, you can take your creative thinking out of the classroom and into the world.  With plenty of start-ups originating from WHU alumni, you have the unique opportunity to learn from the best at WHU.
