Why Cologne?

Cologne - the metropolis on the Rhine is not just home of Germany’s most visited attraction, the city's distinctive Cathedral the Dom. It also offers excellent restaurants, shopping and the traditional brauhaus. But it is Cologne's dynamic urban lifestyle, colourful (and tolerant) night-life, vibrant economy and its famously creative start-up scene which makes it an ideal Ent-Ex venue.

Join Ent-Ex in Cologne for an intensive 3 days of workshops and social activities. Here you’ll meet and learn from successful entrepreneurs, and with the help of our Coaches, identify and develop the skills which have made them successful. And in the final day you'll have the chance to practice your networking skills, and present yourself or your business idea to local entrepreneurs, corporate managers, support agencies and local government representatives.

The event is FREE for students; you just have to pay your catering costs (which works out at just 20 euros per day !).

After each day’s workshop activities, the Ent-Ex venue team and alumni, will help you get to know the city and make the most of the social activities it has to offer, whilst building the networks which will energise your career.
