Start-ups meet Students on 7 July
15.7.2022 | DIT Public Relations
Even though it is probably assumed otherwise, it is often difficult for university start-ups to find fellow entrepreneurs to build up their business. Start-up advisors from the universities and colleges from the Deggendorf Institute of Technology, Passau, Landshut, Regensburg and Amberg-Weiden have noticed this and want to find a solution together. They see a solution in cross-university talent matching events. The first online event took place on 7 July under the motto “Startups meet students”.
The cooperation between the universities increases the chance for the start-ups to find the right team member. They can present themselves to a larger audience and meet students from even more disciplines. A total of eight selected start-up teams presented their start-up projects at the first Talent Matching Event in 3-minute pitches and then went into detail about their vacant positions. They were looking for co-founders, permanent team members, final-year students, working students or interns. Around 85 students took part in the event. After the pitches, they were able to get to know the prospective founders in small groups and in a personal atmosphere.
This time, the talent matching event was organised by the DIT Startup Campus together with the Landshut University of Applied Scienced, the University of Passau and the O/HUBs (University of Regensburg, OTH Regensburg and OTH Amberg-Weiden). All participants can imagine holding further events at each university in turn.
