With the start of the new semester at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, there are a number of new things to announce in the StartGlocal project.
Focus on Impact
Focus on impact has become an integral part of the start-up scene. Particularly Generation Z is increasingly interested in impact, sustainability and environmental topics. This semester, we focus on these important topics as well and would like to support students, employees and alumni in development of their start-up ideas in these sectors. Therefore, we will not only prioritize impact and sustainability in our events, but also include it in our start-up coaching sessions.
We have also prepared several events on the topics of impact, creativity and start-up spirit for students and employees of Rhine-Waal University:
