We are a student-run non-profit company based in Cologne. Here, students can become entrepreneurial at an early stage and work on projects and events. With our connections to the business and start-up scene, but also to students worldwide, we want to create a platform for exchange. An exchange between entrepreneurs and students, between generations and between countries. At our events, we enable conversations at eye level in an informal atmosphere. Since 1984, many stories, ideas and careers have been created in this way.
The power of diverse perspectives on current challenges and creative thinking is more needed than ever. We enable a dialogue at eye level between bright students and accomplished leaders. As a student-run company, we can create a unique open and less formal atmosphere in our events which nevertheless is highly productive.
Our formats are sponsored by a variety of top companies covering multiple industries. Each of these formats are led by high- ranked representatives. Enjoy the opportunity to connect with them not only on a professional but also a personal level.
This is your chance to impress top companies with your work attitude and skills. Stand out from fellow bright students from all over the world and make a lasting impression. All while improving your skills and broadening your knowledge in the event.
We select excellent students from all parts of the world to attend our events. Enjoy this unique spirit, connect with them and get to know different perspectives and tricks of the trade from like minded aspiring students. Whether it be regarding entrepreneurship, academics or international initiatives.
Connect your experience with unbiased out of the box thinking to gain new perspectives on today’s problems. To solve them we need both. Enjoy the opportunity to connect with bright students not only on a professional but also a personal level.

“No matter how bad the situation looks, you can always throw over everything, make a new plan and still succeed. Together as a team you can achieve everything! Just keep on going!”
Have a look at our last event. The World Business Dialogue is a place where people can meet who would have never met otherwise. We aim to create an open atmosphere where anyone can just talk with each other and work on projects together simply as participants. Combined with the openess of the city of Cologne this is a truly unique experience.
