Erstellt von Vivien Christoph am 14.11.2018 um 10:51 Uhr

14.11.2018 (Anirban Saha) - As a part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week, Transfer and Entrepreneur Centre organised the MakerLabs tour inside the university. The tour, conducted in two languages - German and English, encouraged students to be a part of it and visit different incubators inside the university. The decision to have a separate tour is with the intent of having more international students explore more possibilities inside the campus.

ChrisR-TUGZ-FabLabsTour-6249-PanoThe tour begun at nine in the morning at the Flextronic Incubator at the Experimental Factory Magdeburg with a handful of the international students. The concept of an incubator was introduced to them and what opportunities and infrastructure that can avail, should they have an idea and a team to work on the same.

While the Flextronic Incubator amazed the visitors with the prototypes already built, FinTech Incubator amused the students when they said that one of the prototypes that they have implemented came from a school student. The FinTech Incubator works primarily on blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and renewable energy.

ChrisR-TUGZ-FabLabsTour-6197First semester student Hemanth from the Chemical and Energy Engineering found the FabLab and Additiv+ Incubator more like a Garage he would love to be in and build things on their own. From the 3D printers to the high precision laser cutter machine, every visitor appreciated what this incubator had to offer.

The AWI lab showcased the robotic arm “Sawyer” which can be very easily programmed to arrange things or how they use image recognition to make assembling smarter. Also in this incubator, they tried out the lab-grown Augmented Reality headsets. The PerformanceLab Incubator showcased the infrastructure and different ways they measure stress, vision tracking, balance control.

ChrisR-TUGZ-FabLabsTour-6158-PanoThey realised they could make a little difference in their thoughts. Ram who studies Systems Engineering for Manufacturing, said, “All we need is our own idea. Everything else relating to support is provided here.”

And with this, the Transfer and Entrepreneur Centre would like to end this post. We look forward to engaging more international students who are motivated and who want to explore. Needless to mention, at the International Startup School the course has become a little compact. See you there!

ISS has launched again

Erstellt von Vivien Christoph am 12.11.2018 um 11:02 Uhr

12.11.2018 (Anirban Saha) - The International Startup School has launched again for this semester. Last Friday, around fifteen students attended a new launch of the international startup school.

For this semester, we’ve conceptualised a more compact course format; adhering to the previous formats but slightly more compact. We’ve scheduled 6 workshops in 3 weeks. As much as it sounds ambitious, we’re sure we will be able to deliver the best and the students would get time to brainstorm and engage in one on one interactions with us, which would only help them plan and strategize better.

Dr. Stefan Knoll speaking to the students about good problems and how to use them to develop a startup

During the first part of the workshop of the International Startup School, Dr. Stefan Knoll discussed the difference between a startup and a big company and explained why the personality of an entrepreneur is no less than that of a superhero! We did a little personality test, so that students know if they are a hacker, a hustler or a hipster. We also discussed how the university could help students develop their ideas into a business.

During the second part of the workshop, we discussed why a startup needs to solve a good problem. The students, further, developed their own business ideas.

Erstellt von Vivien Christoph am 12.11.2018 um 10:30 Uhr

12.11.2018 (Anirban Saha) - Founders and interested individuals bonding and discussing over beer; isn’t that the ideal way to socialise for a startup school? Last Thursday, around twenty five phd students and postdocs got together with Julian Haupenthal from the startup Neotiv and Dr. Stefan Knoll of TUGZ, at Brewery Brewckau.

Dr. Stefan Knoll speaking to the students about the six ingredients for the successful lean startup.

Julian shared his experiences of running his startup - Neotiv and Stefan shared his experiences from the Transfer- und Gründerzentrum and how to know if you have a good business idea! Julian presented his ideas of his business, the business models and how an entire business works - end to end. Stefan picked it up from there and discussed the six key ingredients to build one’s own lean startup.

04.09.2018 (Vivien Christoph) - Vor wenigen Tagen waren SchülerInnen ab der 9. Klasse auf dem Campus der
Otto-von-Guericke-Universität und haben sich im Rahmen der Gründerkids - Schülerfirmen in Sachsen-Anhalt mit unternehmerischem Denken und Ideenentwicklungen beschäftigt.

Gemeinsam mit den Gründungsberaterinnen erkundeten die Gründerkids  auf einem Rundgang den Campus, die Bibliothek und verschiedene Fakultäten. So konnten spannende Einblicke in die Pforten der OvGU erhascht werden und die SchülerInnen konnten in die Gründerszene hineinschnuppern.

Den Jugendlichen wurde außerdem interessantes Gründungswissen vermittelt und sie hatten die Möglichkeit, ihre praktischen Erfahrungen in der Schülerfirma mit theoretischen Hintergrundinformationen zu verknüpfen. Sie konnten lernen, was eine Gründerpersönlichkeit im besten Fall ausmacht und tauschten sich untereinander mit viel Freude aus.

Abgerundet wurde die Veranstaltung durch einen Workshop zum Thema Design Thinking und einen Abschlussimpuls über das Prinzip der Lean Startups, sodass die Jugendlichen einen rundum spannenden und aufregenden Tag hinter sich hatten.
