Entrepreneurial orientation and successful start-ups
Heubisch talked with HM President Prof. Dr. Martin Leitner and Prof. Dr. Klaus Sailer, Managing Director of the Strascheg Entrepreneurship Center (SCE), about innovation culture and entrepreneurial thinking at HM. He was impressed by the fact that HM has meanwhile developed into one of the leading universities in Germany in the field of entrepreneurship since the start of the SCE in 2002.
In the current startup radar of the Stifterverband, HM and its SCE even rank first among the major German universities.
Prof. Klaus Sailer describes the successful approach of SCE and HM: "We want to help personalities to get ahead, to successfully shape their own future with entrepreneurial means and to take responsibility. If this results in a startup that becomes a major corporation in the future, that is of course wonderful. But our primary goal here is to create a culture of innovation that extends beyond the university and the location, where as many students as possible are taught entrepreneurial thinking and benefit from what we have to offer in implementing business ideas."
