Shaping the Future of Entrepreneurship in Germany and the United States
October 27, 2021
12 pm EST/6 pm CET
Our educational institutions have the potential to develop an entrepreneurial mindset among their students and prepare future leaders to solve complex and fast-changing problems. How have two academic institutions, in Germany and the US, integrated entrepreneurial thinking into the curriculum and across the campus, resulting in an innovative culture as well as significant numbers of start-ups.

What kinds of activities have two high schools adopted to foster a culture of curiosity and innovation among the students? Join us online on October 27 as we bring together two HPI alumni who have founded successful companies, the executive director of HPI's School of Entrepreneurship, the executive director of Lehigh University's Baker Institute of Entrepreneurship, Creativity and Innovation. They will be joined by students from Tenafly High School and the German International School of Silicon Valley.
