IUG – Where the Business World Successfully Meets the Classroom

Partners from the local business community held presentations at the JKU, providing IUG students with insight in to the real business world.

The presentations were held as part of the courses "Intro to Business Start-Ups and Business Development" and "Business Start-Ups and Development 2". Markus Pollhamer and Gerald Pichler from the start-up company "Innoviduum" spoke about their special tool for personnel development. Karl Weixelbaumer and Pascal Kitzmüller (Feel Events, 2:tages:bart, Good Karma Gastro Ltd) offered an unconventionally creative, appealing and motivating talk about the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and the path to success. During the afternoon session Samuel Moser (Prä-Inkubator akostart and Bytewerk at Softwarepark Hagenberg) spoke about the start-up environment in Upper Austria, followed by Tanja Linke, an entrepreneur who spoke about real-life situations, especially business failures. Tanja Linke’s presentation was streamed live as part of an entrepreneur course at the University of Graz.
