For the second time, Frankfurt School will be the academic partner of Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow, a business plan competition for high school students organized by the American-German Business Club (AGBC) in Frankfurt.

When the Club approached us last year to see if we could support them, I was immediately convinced. Students from secondary schools in the Rhein-Main region compete alone or in teams. Over the course of five months, they develop a full business plan. Mentors support them, and they attend regular meetings at Frankfurt School, where they learn everything from marketing to setting up a budget plan.

It’s an excellent opportunity for every student who wants to experience how business works and how to develop a vague idea into an actual plan and become an entrepreneur.

The first meeting will take place on 4 December 2015 at our campus. Interested students can sign up at www.entrepreneurs-of-tomorrow.com.
