The WHU Incubator first introduced the event series of a roadshow in 2013 to reach out to all entrepreneurship-fascinated alumni and to engage them more actively in the entrepreneurial cosmos of WHU. Many alumni have successfully founded their own ventures and are more than willing to share their expertise with younger student generations.

The Incubator hereby bridges both the worlds of fresh entrepreneurs in the making, that are found in all programs on campus, and that of the experienced entrepreneurs and business angels off campus. Teams of active and former WHU students and alumni are welcome to apply and present their ventures at the respective events.

The schedule is strict and cuts it to the core: 7 minutes of pitching - 3 minutes questions and answers. Startups are required to send a clear message to the guests. The open networking afterwards hopefully does the rest.

Over the last years, we have had the pleasure to welcome more than 1000 guests and more than 100 startups at our roadshow events. These startups have acquired six-figure amounts of venture capital.

If you have any question or wish to be kept informed, send us a message at We are looking forward to welcoming even more guests on the upcoming roadshow events.
