Prof. Dr. René Mauer

Entrepreneurship is a fascinating field that has yet to decide where it truly belongs. Many fields of research, such as economy, sociology, and psychology, strived to grasp the underlying phenomenon of ‘the entrepreneur’. The field by itself is very young, as entrepreneurship only became an independent subdomain in the 1980’s, while in Germany the first academic chairs appeared even only around 1998. Entrepreneurship remains a compelling subject, as practitioners provide fascinating success stories, educators develop exciting new approaches, and researchers are all set for tackling the challenging opportunities ahead.
