Doing business on the Danube

Entrepreneurship is a global phenomenon and to prove it 11 Olin Business School students traveled to Hungary in May to work with start-up companies in Budapest.

The trip is an integral part of Clifford Holekamp’s course, “Danube Venture Consulting Program” which was offered for the second time this year. Holekamp is a senior lecturer in entrepreneurship at Olin and initiated the consulting project with a private equity firm in Hungary.

Class members are undergraduate and graduate business school students who work in teams with start-up ventures on specific projects. “The clients include a reality T.V. production company, an off-road GPS software provider, and a Hungarian social networking website,” says Holekamp. “While the projects and clients are all quite different, there are some interesting overlaps related to interactive and mobile media strategies.”
