Student today, company founder tomorrow
The spirit of enterprise is part of the University of St.Gallen’s DNA. 117 firms, most of them still young, bear the HSG spin-off label. 64 of them participated in a new survey: they generated a total of more than CHF 100m turnover in 2017 and have created more than 2,800 jobs since they were founded. Dietmar Grichnik, Professor of Entrepreneurship, presented the new corporate survey on the occasion of the 2018 annual media conference of the University of St.Gallen and provided an extensive insight into the issue of entrepreneurship at the HSG.
