“Global Business Planning” is the final seminar in the specialization International Marketing Management (IMM). For the Winter Semester 2021/22, it was organized by Dr. Elfriede Penz and Matthias Heilbrunner. Ms. Verena Troppmann  assisted with the organization as a Tutor and also served as a member of the "board of directors". The goal is to translate market entry strategy theory into appropriate strategies, reflect and assess critical decisions and marketing strategies. As a result, business plans for Austrian startups, together with internationalization strategies have been developed and are ready to be implemented. It takes with no surprise that some projects have been realized already or will be in the near future! Because Austria is becoming an increasingly fertile soil for start-ups and entrepreneurs, IMM students looked out especially for these. They selected a product, service or brand and figured out strategies to bring them to a foreign market.
