The Entrepreneurial Economy – How to Become a Champion?

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Panel
english language

Do young and emerging European entrepreneurs find the necessary “eco system” for development? How can such an entrepreneurial ambience be developed and further strengthened? Experts will draw on the differences between the US start-up and venture-capital culture versus the European model with its focus on family-owned businesses and bank financing. How should we design European entrepreneurial landscapes?
