SmartUp! - The WHU Entrepreneur Network

SmartUp! - The WHU Entrepreneur Network was founded in 2012 due to the enormous entrepreneurial spirit among the WHU community. Since then, its mission is to foster the entrepreneurial culture and network at WHU while helping its members acquire the knowledge and capabilities necessary to become better entrepreneurs.

Therefore, SmartUp! hosts regular on-campus workshops with experienced entrepreneurs, especially WHU founders, and organizes a yearly Berlin Tour to a selected set of startups from various industries. Due to the closer proximity to another, a now regular startup-tour to Cologne has been launched as of 2013, complemented by the SmartUp! Munich Tour since October 2014.

Volunteer students from the bachelor and master program manage the entrepreneurial club. For further information and to keep in touch, please visit, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our newsletter!
