From 2.30 pm: Connecting with Ukrainian universities The river Danube connects many European countries from Germany to the Black Sea, and now with the war in Ukraine raging, the organizers of the Danube Cup feel compelled to connect with Ukrainian universities that offer management programs. In a hybrid discussion, the participants of the conference will connect with the instructors of Vadym Hertman National University of Economics in Kiev, some of whom are in Ukraine while others have escaped to Hungary, Germany or Spain, and the economics instructors of Izmail State University. Through this discussion we wish to connect with these colleagues, and we intend to explore the situation of higher education during the war, seeking to find out how we can help, from assistance in continuing higher education programs in Hungary, to providing online courses or support for research.  

3.30 pm – 4 pm: Presentation by a successful startup-founder A successful entrepreneur and Corvinus alumna will also give a presentation, describing her experiences with entrepreneurship education. Kati Orbán and her co-founders launched Gyerünk, Anyukám!/GoMomGo, which is a successful startup and also an awareness-raising movement. Starting in 2015, they devised online workouts for mothers with small children, which was definitely innovative at the time. The business soared during the pandemic and now they are working on international expansion. 

4 pm – 5 pm: Entrepreneurship/Startup Education for Students – Quo vadis? Entrepreneurship education is a key area of business programs. At the end of the Danube Cup Conference, we wish to explore this area from an international perspective, from the viewpoint of the countries along the river Danube, with an interactive roundtable discussion with audience engagement. Participants of the ‘ Entrepreneurship/Startup Education for Students – Quo vadis?’  roundtable discussion: Kati Orbán, founder of a successful startup (Corvinus alumna/GoMomGo); Elisabeth Berger, Head of the Entrepreneurship Institute at Johannes Kepler University in Linz and the co-editor of the Q1 journal International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior & Research; Sean Patrick Saßmannshausen, Professor, Head of Department and Head of the Technology Transfer Office at OTH Regensburg; Pál Danyi, associate professor at BME.
