IMAGINE aims at unleashing students' creativity, entrepreneurial, and management skills in preparation for a successful innovative venture startup journey. The partners are set to hand-hold entrepreneurial students from all faculties throughout the journey starting with generating the big idea all the way through to successful launch. This will be accomplished through creativity workshops, idea competitions, business and entrepreneurship training at both GUC and Marburg universities, mentoring, team dating events, and investment fairs.
The project is run by a team of professors, lecturers, TAs, graduates and students from both GUC and Marburg University. The GUC team includes Prof. Dr. Florian Becker-Ritterspach, Dr. Hadia Hamdy, Ms. Yomna Abou Omar and Ms. Hourig Gabeyan.
