“Celebrating Tomorrow’s Ecosystem Shapers” was the theme of the first TQ Talent Night.
A motley 230-crowd came to TechQuartier to get a better understanding for what is needed to empower the entrepreneurial ambition of the up-and-coming generation.
With its Startup Fair the TQ Talent Night provided a perfect platform to mingle with startups and innovative corporates, meet like-minded people and offered a unique opportunity to make the next professional move.
After a talk of Michael Gamber, Head of Innovation Center Merck, a real young panel (average age 26 years, two talents were below 20) the TQ Talent Night generated many inspirations on how we can make an impact on our environment by thinking and acting entrepreneurial. And the bottom line for the entrepreneurs and visionaries of tomorrow? It’s all about passion. Only passion, deep passion for an entrepreneurial journey, can elevate the soul of great things.
But the TQ Talent Night wasn’t actually so perfect that it was already boring – our special guest, Mohamed Ali, wasn’t able to join us at this great evening. Mohamed, a Somali and American national, didn’t get the permission to travel outside his home country due to the current paranoia at the immigration offices. Bad news for us in the early morning hours. We saw him live on stage at Global Entrepreneurship Conference in Sydney and can assure, he is an amazing speaker and his stories stir every listener immediately (goosebumps guaranteed).
Next edition? In progress!
Last but not least: Thanks to our partners Merck, Hessen Trade & Invest and RKW Hessen for supporting us! Thanks to a wonderful audience!
