As It Happened

The StartUp Simulation Game was a great intercultural experience. In close partnership with the “Goethe Institut” over 200 students from India, Vietnam, Ukraine, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Germany, United Kingdom, Romania, Indonesia, Denmark, Estonia and Croatia. Over three hours the students worked in intercultural teams and next to all seriousness in playing the game together, all groups had plenty of time to find the funny side of interacting with each other. For all participants, it was a truly inspiring event. The Leuphana Entrepreneurship Hub and its partners are looking forward to a new game in 2016.
