The series "Let's Talk Tacheles!" regularly brings our Founder Alumni together at various locations of the University of Siegen. In this event, straight talk is the order of the day, and the audience is always at the center of the discussion!

Start-up & Familie – Let’s Talk Tacheles
(28.11.2023) In this panel discussion from our series "Let's Talk Tacheles," the focus was on how challenges in "family management" can be intertwined with the establishment of one's own business - how a satisfying balance between family obligations and the demands of entrepreneurship can be achieved. Despite challenging winter weather conditions causing difficult traffic on November 28th, young founders and those interested in entrepreneurship gathered at Leo (Learning Space) on the AR Campus of the university in Haardt to exchange experiences and gain insights from guest speakers on successful family and start-up management. Here for the retrospective.
