Entrepreneurial thinking and action are indispensable qualification for a career nowadays. Be it in starting a business or freelance work. And even as an employee in the company graduates should be able to act entrepreneurially, as "entrepreneurs within the enterprise".
Starting a business needs to be based on a good business idea. This can be a technology-related idea based on research and development work at the Academy as well as a service or an entirely "non-technical" business idea. The central question is the market need for the new product or service. In addition personal qualifications and competencies of the founder, technical and business specializations are crucial. The hgnc events program takes both aspects into account offering, for example, topics like the "Basics of Entrepreneurship" or the practical seminar "Business Plan".
n addition to qualification offers hgnc is offering workshops and is providing  individual discussions and coaching to startup entrepreneurs, for example, helping to develop a business plan or discussing financing options for the implementation of the business. hgnc has access to a well-developed  network including almost all important partners in the economy.
All services of hgnc are free for students, staff and researchers of the member organizations of hgnc eV.
