After two weeks of further preparation of participation ideas and shared reflection on our trip to the German Bundestag on our last workshop weekend in our instant messaging group, 8 students participated on the “Gründer- und Unternehmerforum” (Founder´s Forum) of the Foundation of German Business (sdw).
The Forum was an opportunity to take part in discussions with scholarship holders of the sdw, to present participation ideas and find supporting team members or mentors. Furthermore, CAST YOUR VOICE participants took part in workshops about team building and fundraising, learnt about founding organisations with a founder from the Middle East and pitched one of the ideas on a barcamp session.
After the weekend, many teams were motivated to work on translating their ideas to reality and handed in funding proposals. Keep your fingers crossed!
