KLU Logistics Start-Up Day – Taking lessons from successful entrepreneurs

  • Past event to
  • Kühne Logistics University (Grosser Grasbrook 17, 20457 Hamburg)

What does it take to transform a promising idea into a solid business model? How are those ideas even generated? And what do you do once your business is going? Students at KLU can ask all these and a lot more questions at the Logistics Start-Up Day on January 24, 2017.

A lot of new and exciting start-ups are emerging right now, especially in the area of transportation and logistics and driven by digital transformation. For students in these fields, they provide some interesting opportunities: Be it as a future employer or as a role model for their own business idea. So students in the MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management, together with professors Hanno Friedrich and André Ludwig, decided to invite them to a hands-on lesson in entrepreneurship.

11 start-ups will be talking about their business models and how they plan to change the game in logistics. After the pitches by the start-ups, it’s the students’ turn to dig deeper and get their questions answered in interactive sessions.
