Alumni Meetup at BMW Startup Garage

On Friday night, 40 alumni and current participants of the Executive MBA in Innovation and Business Creation (EMBA) gathered at the BMW Startup Garage for this year’s first alumni meetup.

Dr. Matthias Meyer, alumnus of the EMBA and founder of the BMW Startup Garage, welcomed the guests and introduced his high-profile BMW unit located in Garching-Hochbrück near Munich.

The BMW startup garage builds a link between the major corporation and early stage startups in the automotive sector – a fertile ground for aspiring teams, new innovations and latest technologies, as the modern premises already suggest.

Thanks to the varied personal and professional backgrounds of the students and alumni of the Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation – among them founders, corporate innovators and several BMW employees – entertaining stories are guaranteed on a night like this: Following Meyer´s introduction, numerous guests grabbed the opportunity to share their current projects, their entrepreneurial endeavors and challenges they have been facing on the way.

An alumni reunion, a visit to a modern co-working space, and of course plenty of food, drinks and chats – the evening was packed with entertainment and networking opportunities. No doubt, it was a great ending of the work week for all participants and a great success for the alumni club.
