Alumni Startups

The distinct entrepreneurial mindset of EBS Students and EBS Alumni, its combination with commercial toolset, exemplary enthusiasm and desire to creation and invention has been led a number of alumni to become particularly successful in self-employment businesses. Aside from industrial career success, our EBS Alumni have been succeeding traditionally in professional banking and commercial careers. Increasing over recent years, EBS Alumni have devoted themselves to an entrepreneurial career path. Regardless of the time of entrance into the venture world – during or immediately following education at the EBS Universität or subsequent to years of professional experience -, our EBS Alumni are prodigiously involved and prosperous in their choices.
