Startups are the future of our economy - and are therefore to receive even greater support from the newly founded Advisory Board for Young Digital Economy in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. 
Prof. Dr. Malte Brettel, holder of the chair of economics for engineers and scientists at our faculty, is a member of the new advisory board and provides support with his expertise.

Together with the Minister of Economics, Mona Neubaur, the overall goal is to create a better starting position for founders to build up their young companies. To achieve this goal, the cooperation between start-ups, existing business enterprises, funding bodies and universities is to be improved in the long term.

We are pleased that the RWTH and in particular the Faculty of Business and Economics are represented in this initiative by Prof. Dr. Malte Brettel.
