HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management and McKinsey & Company are organizing a two-day workshop that will give you the opportunity to take on the role of a consultant as well as the work of a startup while learning more about HHL and its Master programs.

In a team of 4-5 students, you will advise Dashfactory and develop recommendations for the future scaling of the startup. Dasfactory stands for safe and attractive mobility for the future. Dashfactory aims to increase safety for cyclists and effectively improve transport infrastructure using validated and up-to-date data for cities and urban planners.

You will be supported by experienced McKinsey consultants who have studied at HHL themselves. At the end, you will present the results to the founders, our alumni and an HHL team of professors and staff.

Take this opportunity to meet with representatives of McKinsey, HHL professors, alumni and current students and inform yourself about the study opportunities at HHL and the entry into top management consulting in a relaxed setting.

The event will take place on site at the HHL campus in Leipzig. The overnight stay in Leipzig and the complete catering during the 2-day workshop will be provided.

The HHL Startup Consulting Days gave me helpful insights in the HHL spirit and the consulting business. It was the perfect opportunity to get in touch with HHL students, McKinsey consultants and at the same time learn more about the challenges of a startup.

Targeted marketing is essential for the overall business performance of our DASHFACTORY, especially in the B2C sector. We see enormous potential in social media marketing for our innovative DASHBIKE products and are therefore particularly looking forward to working closely with motivated students. We are very curious about the results!
