We have the chance to build a better world. More loving, funny, sensitive and artistic than ever before. But we have to enter the ring ourselves, get it ourselves going, do it ourselves. Not leave it to mere profit maximizers.

The Entrepreneurship Summit 2017 is organized by the Entrepreneurship Foundation under the leadership of Prof. Günter Faltin.
Who is the Founder
Prof. Günter Faltin is a university lecturer, company founder, business angel and best-selling author ("Kopf schlägt Kapital"). He set up the Entrepreneurship Department at Freie Universität Berlin. But he knew: As a university lecturer, you are not convincing, if you only know theory. That is why he took his own business idea into practice with the "Teekampagne" (tea campaign) in 1985. With his Darjeeling tea, he became market leader in the German tea mail-order in only a short time.
In his Entrepreneurship Laboratory he explains how to find a founding idea, systematically develop it, and constantly work on it until it shows clear competitive advantages.
This is where the Entrepreneurship Foundation is set up. Since 2001 initiator Prof. Faltin has been involved with his team for the development of conceptual creative foundings. In doing so, they support entrepreneurs and those who want to become involved with materials, workshops, competitions and a yearly course in which the participants are empowered to work on their own ideas.
What is the Founding Story behind?
Prof. Faltin is convinced: everyone can start up if he sends a well thought-out concept into the race. It is not the start-up capital, but the mind, the passion and the desire to design, reject and re-shape the concept - again and again - until a viable business model emerges.
In order to carry this conviction into the world and to encourage more people to found, Prof. Faltin initiated the Entrepreneurship Summit in 2009. The founders event has grown steadily over the years, bringing together people who want to use entrepreneurship to create a better future for our society.
