Anna-Katharina Pelzel founded her start-up new work campus together with Nico Hauschke in 2020. With their collective, the two want to combine education and business to implement effective and sustainable networking concepts for joint learning and development. This is also how they came up with the idea for their product "trabayolo," a digital platform that helps young people shape their own path in life. They are supported in this by Jana Hollmann at the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship. Jana works as a startup consultant at SCE, where she guides individuals and teams through the startup process. In this podcast episode, Anna and Jana talk about their collaboration and experiences with start-up consulting, challenges in the start-up process, and self-determination in everyday work.
