Startup@HSG is the first point of contact for startups and entrepreneurship at the University of St.Gallen. Our Startup-Lab supports students and all other HSG-members on her entrepreneurial path, independently which level they reached so far (Idea, Prototype, ready for market).
 
We offer an incubation program, startup-coaching, startup-offices, startup-events, a MakerSpace and much more. HSG-Startups that are already successful can apply for our HSG-Spin-Off-Label and join the network of amazing HSG-Entrepreneurs.

Strategic Entrepreneurship Research Lab
Dietmar Grichnik | Charlotta Sirén | Barbara Burkhard | Henrik Wesemann | Mike Hudecheck | Barbara Schmidt
 
Focusing on entrepreneurial decision-making, we investigate experimental learning processes and decision-making that leads entrepreneurs to act on opportunities. In our research, we heavily rely on state of the art methods such as experiments and meta-analyses. Our largest current project is the SNF Research Project “Learning More when Learning Together” in collaboration with ETH Zurich, that investigates antecedents and consequences of New Venture Team Learning.
 
In addition to our research activities, we collaborate with a large number of internationally leading business schools, universities, and technical universities.
 
Moreover, we ensure practical impact by applying gained insights in practical projects at the different units of the Chair for Entrepreneurship.
