Hasso Platt­ner Insti­tut - Digi­tal Engi­nee­ring

Since 2015 the HPI School of Entre­pre­neurship (E-School) is an inte­gral part of the Hasso Platt­ner Insti­tute (HPI) desi­gned to fos­ter entre­pre­neurship at the HPI and to create a link bet­ween sci­ence and busi­ness prac­tice. All activi­ties and infor­ma­tion rela­ting to the sub­ject of entre­pre­neurship are coor­di­na­ted there. Edu­ca­tion and rese­arch in this field are the cor­ners­tone for fur­ther hands-on offe­rings for HPI stu­dents and alumni, such as the busi­ness plan com­pe­ti­tion and topic-spe­ci­fic work­shops. Foun­ding teams also have the oppor­tu­nity to use the cowor­king space and receive indi­vi­dual entre­pre­neurship coa­ching. The HPI Seed Fund foun­ded in autumn 2015 com­ple­tes the uni­que offe­ring by pro­vi­ding first finan­cial sup­port for selec­ted HPI rela­ted star­tups.
The HPI is a uni­que rese­arch and teaching insti­tu­tion in Ger­many. It was foun­ded in 1998 and is struc­tu­red as the inde­pen­dent Faculty of Digi­tal Engi­nee­ring at the Uni­ver­sity of Pots­dam. The HPI con­ducts inter­na­tio­nally reco­gni­zed rese­arch and offers high-qua­lity Bache­lor and Mas­ter pro­grams in the field of Digi­tal Engi­nee­ring.
