HHL Visiting Dr. Hops at the Long Night of Science

Long Night of Science in Leipzig June 22, 2018

The numbers are known: Each year, over 1,100 companies in Saxony alone need a new boss. According to a study of HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management, companies in the Free State of Saxony rarely aim for a solution within the family. Alarmingly, only 22 percent have a succession plan at all. That’s why Junior Professor Alexander Lahmann from HHL brings together science and economy at one table at the Craft Beer Bar Dr. Hops, a HHL start-up, to discuss this important future issue during the startup phase of the Institute for Family Businesses & Entrepreneurial Succession (IFU).

Science and economy share a table on the topic of corporate succession.

Alexander Lahmann will discuss the current problem with Antje Strohm from KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft and Harald Rehberg from the Wachstumsfonds Mittelstand Sachsen (WMS), both experienced experts, and introduce the IFU. The HHL institute, which specializes in company evaluation and matching, is already at the center of public attention, even prior to its foundation. The open discussion round with entrepreneurs, economists and the creators of the IFU will be in German and premiere within the framework of the Long Night of Sciences.
