Financial knowledge, personal development, networking - these are the three pillars on which the Investment Club ESB Business School e.V. rests. ESB students Sina Krist and Josh Tolsdorf have taken this to heart. They took second place in the nationwide "Stock Pitch Competition" organized by the national association of stock exchange clubs at German universities.

This umbrella organization, known by its German acronym, BVH, held this year’s "BVH Digital Conference Week" online. In this way, around 18,000 students from the roughly 70 student investment clubs came together for a week of presentations, career talks and networking opportunities. A highlight was the final of the BVH Stock Pitch Competition on Friday. Member associations were able to broadcast this event live. To strengthen ties with other clubs, the ESB Business School Investment Club invited the University of Tübingen’s BFS Society to this event.

Observing all safety and hygiene regulations, the 55 participants first watched the finals of the BVH Stock Pitch Competition. The five final teams included Sina Krist (BSc International Management Double Degree) and Josh Tolsdorf (BSc International Business) from ESB Business School. They presented two share values - a “long pitch” and a “short pitch” - and then faced questions from the panel of experts. In a convincing performance, they took second place. Among the things praised by jury member Daniel Münch from the financial services institute Flossbach von Storch was the team's friendly, unforced yet analytically strong presentation.

The BFS Society from Tübingen and the Investment Club ESB Business School e.V. then got to know each other better during the joint stock market game in teams of two. "It was fun to participate in a great face-to-face event again after such a long time and to organize the event together with the BFS Society," says Josh Tolsdorf.

At the end of the evening, the participants listened to a keynote speech by four employees of Goldman Sachs investment bank. They gave insights into their departments and provided information about career opportunities at the company.

The ESB Investment Club organizing team was satisfied all round - “We would like to thank all participants, the BFS Society and the ESB Business School team who supported us. If the situation allows it, we want to offer exciting in-person events for our members again in the future and as soon as possible,” they said.
