LeipGlo has interviewed Alhassan Muniru, a bright young entrepreneur from Ghana who has studied at Leipzig University. As head of the organization Recycle Up! Ghana, he has grabbed the attention of the World Bank and hobnobbed with the likes of former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
For the next LeipGlo Job Fair, we’ve got tech, a restaurant, a walking tour, a jewelry (accessories) maker, teaching institutions, a startup accelerator, entrepreneurs looking for their business soulmates, and more. They will be there aiming to turn your frown upside down and find their dream employees, too. Friday, 24 May, in the LVZ dome.
LeipGlo has a new partnership with the local Wootodo platform: Now, we serve you fresher feedings of cool events going on around Leipzig. You can also upload your own events for free, to appear on our website as well as on their app and other channels.
