6th Steinbeis Entrepreneur Forum 2018

Event review

Representatives of SMEs, Steinbeis customers and partners, students and alumni of Steinbeis University Berlin – on July 20, a variety of guests came to the Steinbeis House for Management and Technology in Stuttgart to gain inspiration at the 6th Steinbeis Entrepreneur Forum and pick up on the very latest ideas.

The event revolved around two stimulating talks on the topics of blockchain technology and business startups. There was also a parallel talk on digital solutions in analog sectors of industry. In a speech on The Startup Code – The things SMEs can and must learn from startups, Johannes Ellenberg (Accelerate Stuttgart) examined seven key steps that should run down the backbone of every company aiming to bring about change in its organization. Dr. Gunther Herr (WOIS INSTITUT) and the multiple entrepreneur Benjamin Butscher looked at digitalization trends and highlighted the typical patterns of successful strategic planning in fields of business that are subject to dynamic change. Finally, Alexander Sachs (codecentric AG) looked at actual examples from business and showed a variety of concepts that demonstrate how blockchain technology might change our lives in the long term. After each talk, the audience was invited to take part in round table discussions to go into the topics in more depth with the presenters.

The occasion offers a useful information-sharing and networking forum and supports the process of sharing experiences. As an official networking event of the Steinbeis Network, the day is organized by the Steinbeis Center of Management and Technology (Filderstadt).
