A bit more than 2 years ago, I got accepted to a master’s degree program at the best university in Germany, the Technical University of Munich (TUM). At that time I was completely new to the university and the German education, so I had to learn everything through experience. Looking back, everything would have been easier if somebody could have given me some advice and shared with me some tips and tricks. That’s why I decided to make your life easier by writing this article. …

Let’s be honest, 2020 was not an easy one. For some it was devastating and for others, it was just different from what we were used to. There is no such thing as a bad year or a good year. A year is simply a timeframe we humans have created, an illusion. What happens in between is life. And life is never dull. However, the notion of a year serves us as a way to reflect on the past 365(6) days and thus better prepare for the next 365 days.

I, a Centerling

If you are reading this article, there is a high chance you know what CDTM is, and most probably you want to become part of it (or already are a Centerling). But even if you don’t, no worries, I will explain it to you. Lately, I have been asked by some students and friends for advice on how to make a good application, and I thought it would be even better to write an article about how I got into the CDTM community.

For the ones who don’t know, the Center for Digital Technology and Management (CDTM) is a joint…

Hi guys! Can you please tell me how did you hear about Tech Challenge and why did you decide to join?

Some of us heard about it from friends in higher semesters and some of us just read about it in the module catalog. As we are all majoring in entrepreneurship & innovation it fits our study focus perfectly. Apart from that, we wanted to work on something real and in a team in contrast to other theoretical classes. We also wanted to get a feeling of how it is like to develop a prototype.

After participating in the Tech Challenge with our safewAI app, I and my team members became aware of all the great opportunities that UnternehmerTUM offers to startups, or even to us, who wanted to found a startup. UnternehmerTUM is the biggest innovation and entrepreneurship center in Europe, so no surprise they would offer great programs. One of these programs that we as a team came across was the TIE2(THU-TUM) International Lab. TIE2 offers two exchange periods, one in China, Beijing, and the other one in Munich, Germany. During these exchanges, 16 startups (8 from China and 8 from Germany) experience…

I have been living in Germany (Bavaria specifically) for almost two years now, and believe it or not, I’m starting to love Germans. Yeah, yeah, we all know the stereotypes about them being cold people, distant, and have no sense of humor. Do I agree with these? Not really.

However, some stereotypes are true. Germans are indeed super organized. If you ask your german friends for a coffee sometimes, they will most probably open their calendar, see how busy it is, and luckily, will find some free time within the month. Which to me, in the beginning, was a bit…

When starting a new business, one has to choose between founding as a solo entrepreneur or as a team. Having a look at the start-up landscape research has shown that most of the new ventures decide to start as a team. The concept of friendship among founders reveals contradictory suggestions when it comes to its influence on the start-up success and founders often ask themselves if they should found with their friends or not.

Although there are arguments against founding with friends, there are also examples of companies that started out as a team between good friends and have managed…

Hi guys! Can you tell me something about your experience in Basic Business Plan Seminar (BPG)?

William: It was amazing. I think from the very start when we met the first day the course has been cool with the online lecture and the online meetings with the coach and the team. It has been great all the way through.

Why did you decide to join BPG in the first place?

William: There are three different stories about why and how we joined the BPG program for each of us. For me, I was working at Northvolt last summer as an…

What is customer experience?

Customer experience refers to the total of all experiences the customer has with the business, based on all interactions and thoughts about the business.

Is the customer experience the same as customer service?

No, but customer service is part of customer experience indeed.

Imagine you contact an Amazon employee because your order has not been delivered. The employee will reply to you fast, be very…
