Alumni vs. Covid-19, career news and a club for women

News from the ESB Alumni Community

Alumni against Covid-19

The coronavirus has kept the world on tenterhooks since the beginning of the year – and it is also a topic in the ESB alumni community.

Back in spring ESB Reutlingen Alumni e.V. reported on Florian von der Mülbe (MBA 2005), co-founder and COO of the Tübingen biotech company CureVac, which is currently conducting research on a vaccine against Covid19.

A test for the coronavirus has been launched by Oliver Schacht (IPBS 1994), managing director of Curetis, a molecular diagnostics company. He answers questions about it in the alumni magazine Europolitan.

In India, alumnus Shounak Deshmukh (MBA 2020) also worked on the development of a corona test.

In order to support its members in times of corona, ESB Reutlingen Alumni e.V. has created the Alumni Spirit Support. Under the umbrella of the initiative, there have been internship and job placements, webinars as wells as yoga and mindfulness training.

Women’s Club

The foundation of the ESB Women’s Club within the alumni network was not a result of corona but the consequence of a chance meeting of several ESB graduates in Munich. A team around Antonia Kalusche (IPBS 2020) and Laura Pröfrock (IPBS 2018) wants to network and promote ESB alumnae with the Women’s Club.  In the interview you can find out more about the kick-off and their future plans.
