What it’s all about

To be or not to be.... at IdeaLab! – WHU Founders’ Conference

Our home

We are very happy to host IdeaLab! – WHU Founders’ Conference at our university WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management in Vallendar, Germany. Vallendar is a lovely little town near the city of Koblenz.

It has been made a great place to stay by the people who live and study there and we can assure you that you will have a great time here!

Our family

Our IdeaLab! family is a very important part in organizing and hosting the conference. We are nine brothers and two sisters organizing the next conference and are greatly supported by our elder siblings who organized IdeaLab! 2014, IdeaLab! 2013 and by our very own IL! – Alumni all over the world. 

Of course we want to do way better this year ; -) 

Our university is a leading business school in Europe

WHU — Otto Beisheim School of Management is one of the best and most renowned German business schools, and enjoys an excellent international reputation.
A particularly interesting expression of the proverbial “WHU Spirit” can be found in the intellectual, cultural, and social commitment of our students. The ever-present WHU spirit, born of mutual trust, support and respect, endures long after the time spent at the business school. It prepares the individual to accept responsibility in business and society.
