June 20, 2016 – „That´s what we have always done“ is a sentence which should make potential founders prick up their ears because behind this sentence is almost always hidden a good business model. Lars Hinrichs, founder of Xing and entrepreneur, gave this good advice to the participants of the congress „Digitization Transforms – Founders’ Future in Germany“ organized by the MÜNCHNER KREIS on July 9th.

Brigitte Zypries, parliamentary secretary of the federal minister for economy and energy, invited the young entrepreneurs to take advantage of the funding opportunities in Germany, as support is not only offered by the Federal Republic but also by the federal states.

Hermann pointed out two deficits that hinder entrepreneurship at universities: Universities should act more entrepreneurial and become venture capitalists themselves, but also have to defend their intellectual property in a better way.
