We are proud to announce Dr. Sebastian Winkler as our next Open Lectures speaker! If you’ve ever been curious about what it takes to transition from academia to entrepreneurship, this lecture is for you!
Dr. Winkler holds a PhD in physics from the University of Georgia (USA) and was the department manager for medical R&D at Leoni Fiber Optics, overseeing the building of nuclear power plants. At first sight, he seemed absolutely set – a solid job, a growing family, and an impressive academic background to boot. And then, he found the one problem that he wanted to solve, and his life changed forever. He gave up his job as an engineering project manager and, in 2014, founded Medizintechnikmarkt, the leading online marketplace for purchasing capital medical equipment in Germany and France. Every month, more than 1.000 purchase projects are started on medizintechnikmarkt.de, worth more than 20 million Euros in total.
We can’t wait to hear what Dr. Winkler has to teach us about what it takes for an academic to become an entrepreneur. Get your ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gtec-open-lecture-dr-sebastian-winkler-founder-of-medizintechnikmarkt-tickets-31427252759
