Hyping Entrepreneurship: Why we need to rebrand the sterotype

with Aya Jaff (CoDesign Factory), Kaddie Rothe (Goalgirls), Matthes Dohmeyer (Truffls)


Berlin-based magazine Business Punk is celebrating the release of their annual Business Punk Watchlist. It lists 100 founders, makers and creatives to look out for in 2019. And for the first time, four of those 100 finalists will join a panel at Factory Berlin to discuss entrepreneurship.

Aya, Kaddie and Matthes will talk about what motivates them, how they became entrepreneurs so early in their lives and what needs to do be done in Germany to motivate young people to follow their lead. They will also address why Germans think of ‘suits and ties’ when they hear the word “entrepreneur and why unlike in the US, very few students consider self-employment an attractive career path.
