of our Community Space for Entrepreneurship & Prototyping

I joined the Precelerator right at the beginning of my studies because I wanted to meet other students beyond my department. I was looking for like-minded people, people who also want to do something and want to get involved, and I found what I was looking for. Now we are a team of three students and one alumni and last semester we planned the construction of a hydroponics system and built a prototype. That was a lot of fun. now we are in the process of implementing the plant.

The Precelerator is a great place to get creative and productive. Whether I want to concentrate on writing a term paper or do more crafts, there's always room here and a wide range of workshops. I especially like the interaction in the building: you can always find someone for an interesting conversation.

One thing I've always known: I want to be an entrepreneur. At the moment, I'm still looking for an idea. The Precelerator is a great place to get in touch with HM start-ups. It's really cool and inspiring.
