red pill

“U-SCHOOL was for me like taking the red pill!”

After tree exciting and informative days full of digital transformation, digital marketing and hot topics like failing and the dark side of entrepreneurship, this year’s participants completed the last module out of four. In his final presentation, Thomas Beyer compared his personal U-SCHOOL experience with the blockbuster Matrix: “U-SCHOOL was for me like taking the red pill!”

We are happy that you could liberate yourself from the Matrix and look forward to continue together along our chosen path into reality.

Keep entrepreneuring and check out the photos!

U-SCHOOL – 3rd module

Module 3 of U-SCHOOL (Unternehmerschule) – time to fine-tune the project!

Recently the participants of #USCHOOL finished their third module on the Berlin Campus. It was all about Managing – their projects’ strategy as well as the numbers. By the example of ted talks, they learned more about storytelling to pitch their ideas in a powerful way.

During a special session, every participant got feedback by different experienced mentors of our network.

We are looking forward to the last module in November! Keep entrepreneuring!
