It’s Time for the Next Round of the Regional “Promotion School” Competition for Pupils – Registration Open until 17th February 2011

“With the promotion school, we aim to introduce young people to thinking and acting like entrepreneurs and to familiarise them with self-employment as a potential career prospect", explains Maren Leinweber, Head of Campus Development at Wolfsburg AG.

This year, pupils in years 10-12 from the southeast area of the German Federal State of Lower Saxony will again be given the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of a company start-up in the form of a management game. The competition is being run by Wolfsburg AG and the organisation projekt REGION BRAUNSCHWEIG GMBH. This year's co-operation partners of the promotion school are the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences, the Gifhorn-Wolfsburg Sparkasse bank and the Entrepreneurship Campus led by Professor Günter Faltin at the Free University of Berlin. The registration period for interested schools runs until 17th February 2011. Registrations can be submitted by e-mail to innovationscampus@wolfsburg-ag.com or over the telephone by calling +49 (0) 5361 897 1226.


Once they have registered for the management game, the participants will attend a variety of workshops, at which start-up experts from Wolfsburg AG will support them in both the creation of their business idea and the development of their business model. The submitted business models will then be judged by a jury and the winners will be announced at a closing event at the beginning of July. Cash prizes and items with a total value of 8000 Euros are up for grabs!
