Professor Dr Annika Wolf of the School of Business at the Hochschule Emden-Leer invites you to a flash conference showcasing recent success stories in the field of entrepreneurship education.

On 17 June, from 9:45am to 4pm, the MeerCommunity Startup Center is organizing a flash conference on trends in Entrepreneurship Education.

Participants can look forward to a day packed with exciting guests, inspiration for your own projects and a lively exchange with like-minded enthusiasts of a hands-on approach to Entrepreneurship Education. Among others, our international guests are:

  • Dr Diederich Bakker from the Marian van Os Centre of Expertise Entrepreneurship. He will share insights from his ongoing EDR study on the cross-border start-up scene and skills development, particularly between the province of Groningen and Northern Germany.

  • Dr Kirsten Mikkelsen, Director Entrepreneurship, Gender & Education Jackstädt-Zentrum Europa Universität Flensburg. She will share her experience as an entrepreneurial ecosystem designer through cross border entrepreneurship education projects.

  • Dr Eyal Benjamin, a serial entrepreneur and a strategic innovation professional from Tel Aviv University. He started the Startup Mentor Chatbot and will share current trends from one of the most innovative and entrepreneurial countries in the world.



The day’s program features impulse speeches, reflective discussions and an interactive session in the afternoon during which Franziska Facius will facilitate the design of a co-created action plan for a tailored application of the European EntreComp framework.  At the end of the day, conference participants will be able to join for a networking event giving you the chance to reflect on the insights of the day chatting with old and new friends alike.
