Three questions for Dr. Petra Nylund

September 29, 2021

"Three questions for..." is a format of the regularly published newsletter for Startup & Entrepreneurship at the University of Stuttgart. Here, people from the ecosystem of the University of Stuttgart introduce themselves, report on their experiences with the topic of "startup and entrepreneurship" and reveal tips for people interested in founding a company.

1. Please briefly introduce yourself and your current job.
I research and teach entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystems.
2. How did you get involved in entrepreneurship?
I first declined venture funding during my MSc and then went on to build a mobile telecom operator.
3. What tip would you give to students who are enthusiastic about founding a company, who are currently thinking about founding a company or who have already taken the first steps towards self-employment?
Always keep scalability in mind! The step from the "garage" to a full-fledged company is where many good ventures get stuck.
