This was a big day for everyone – not only because we visited the state parliament before our YES!-Kick-Off meeting (and arrived late and dripping with sweat at the ZBW Kiel for that reason) – but also because now, finally, the starting gun had truly been fired for our project!
On the 2nd March 2018, our team from Cecilien-Gymnasium Düsseldorf started the project with the Kick-Off at the iwp in Cologne. We chose the topic “How to gain trust in online markets?”, which we discussed over the course of this Kick-Off.
All over the world but especially in Germany the digitisation in companies is a huge problem. Germany with its strong industry only achieves about ten percent of its possible digital potential. Because of this, we feel responsible for supporting digital development in business. Thus, we decided to participate in the Young Economic Summit – YES! this year.
Wednesday, 05:45 am, railway station Burgdorf. We waited for our bus to our Kick-Off Meeting in Essen. It was late. Nobody knew exactly, how long we have to wait for. Nevertheless, we were all motivated. We were happy about our opportunity.
