Manuel Weberndorfer's inspiration and desire to develop his own start-up idea came directly from the course "Unternehmensgründung und Gründungsfinanzierung".

Off to the Global Finals

The business idea is a deposit system for reusable packaging. With this idea, the two students won the Austrian finals of Red Bull Basement. So they were invited to the Global Finals in Turkey.

Exciting insights from leading visionaries, workshops and surprise activities await the finalists before the idea is presented to a panel of experts in the last step.
