N26, ChargeX, Horizn Studios  - these successful German start-ups show how highly innovative the startup scene is in a wide range of different industries. Although the start-up rate in Germany is relatively low in comparison to other countries, it is easier for founders to establish themselves here. Start-ups are focusing more on sustainability aspects and are increasingly founded by women. What are the motivations behind creating a start-up? What are the challenges and what opportunities might arise? We will be discussing these and other questions with Patrick Luik, founder of the Stuttgart-based software start-up "CODE2ORDER". 

in 2015, Patrick Luik founded "CODE2ORDER", an international software start-up based in Stuttgart that supports hotels by making the entire hotel stay a digital experience for the guest. This fast-growing company has won several innovation awards and operates in more than 2,500 hotels across 27 countries.

Andreas Lehrfeld is program executive at the Baden-Württemberg office of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom. Before joining the Foundation, the graduate in sinology and political science was a scholarship holder in the Foundation's scholarship program for gifted students.

As part of our annual theme "Reimagining Space  - New Utopias", School for Talents invites you to explore ideas with guests from the Begabtenförderungswerke (programs for the promotion of talented students) of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). 

The event will be held online. Registration is not required. Event language: German.
