Last week it was time for the final pitches of the first INTIE semester. The aim was to discover opportunity fields that would be interesting for an impact start-up based on trend and market research. The teams presented their ideas, which covered many areas from personalised food platforms to sustainable medical devices and sustainable fashion and got valuable feedback from our practice partners, the professors and alumni. We are totally looking forward to the second semester!
The voice of our alumni
“In the INTIE program, I met many interesting people who want to make a difference as entrepreneurs in Hamburg. In addition, the support from the INTIE team and the professors was great, and you got a guide from experts, step by step, to build your own start-up.”
“As a social scientist and humanities graduate, INTIE was one of the rare opportunities for me to gain an insight into entrepreneurship without an explicit business background. I learned the first steps towards starting a business – something that is usually not part of my other curriculum. This has opened new doors in my career orientation and, thanks to the INTIE network, the options now seem tangible to me. In addition, I have met people in the program with whom I can seriously imagine turning a business idea into reality. The two semesters were worth it for that alone!”
“The INTIE program brings together an incredible amount of theoretical knowledge and valuable experience on the subject of start-ups. As a team, we developed a business idea, whereby the interdisciplinary composition led to diverse impulses from different perspectives and exciting discussions during product development. We were strongly supported by the close cooperation with professors and partners from the business community. Thank you INTIE, for the two great semesters.”
