Carina Röllig with Startup Teens in Leipzig

Startup Teens is a nonprofit that helps students implement their business ideas free of charge. Whether with the help of online training, through an exchange at events or through a mentoring program – Startup Teens wants to teach teenagers from all educational backgrounds how to think and act like entrepreneurs.

Kicking Off a New Entrepreneurial Culture

To support this cause, over 120 students as well as politicians, founders and multipliers met for a panel discussion at the wunderbar in Plagwitz, Leipzig.

The participants between 14 and 19 years listened intently to Marina Heimann, managing director of futureSAX, Barbara Meyer, assistant secretary of the State Ministry for Economic Affairs and Labor, Thomas Fleck, CEO of Blugento GmbH, Martin Menz, CEO of Relaxdays, the YouTube stars Alex and Nico from The Simple Club as well as our founder Carina Röllig as they talked about their everyday work and the motivation and error culture in entrepreneurship. The young audience asked numerous questions and eagerly listened to the responses of the entrepreneurs. During the subsequent networking, the first founding ideas and helpful contacts were exchanged over pretzels and lemonade.
