Scou­ting process

Semester exhi­bi­tion

At the end of each semester, students from all degree programs spend two days presen­ting their appro­xi­mately 500 semester and final projects to the public. As part of goScou­ting, scou­ting teams of three people each – both internal and external to the HfG, and accom­pa­nied by students – syste­ma­ti­cally sift through the exhi­bited work. The scouts“ task is to iden­tify parti­cu­larly promi­sing projects and moti­vated teams.

Scouting Prozess

Scou­ting Team

The conver­sa­tion between the scou­ting team and students is prima­rily about sugges­tions, encou­ra­ge­ment, or success stories that can help solve chal­lenges for the project teams. Mean­while, deve­lo­p­ment oppor­tu­nities and any points that need to be clari­fied should be briefly discussed with the students.


If the scou­ting team is convinced of the students“ moti­va­tion and the poten­tial of the project, the scouts can present a goCard to the project leaders. By accep­ting the goCard, the teams are moti­vated to further develop their project and agree to parti­ci­pate in work­shops such as goBusi­ness­Model, goCon­nec­ting, goCoa­ching, goAward and goStart. The further deve­lo­p­ment of the project idea is voluntary. 

Scouting Dialog

In the goScou­ting dialogue, the scou­ting team (start-up, finan­cing, design and busi­ness experts) encou­rages students to further develop their prac­tical projects and proto­types in regards to the Busi­ness Model Canvas and future viabi­lity. Projects with poten­tial receive a goCard.

Compo­si­tion of scou­ting team

Central to the success of this measure are the exper­tise, empathy, and moti­va­tion of the scou­ting teams. For this reason, great emphasis is put on the selec­tion of scouts and the compo­si­tion of the scou­ting teams. The goal is to have the teams as balanced as possible. Each team should always have at least one expert in the three core areas of busi­ness expe­ri­ence, start-up, and design/​creation. Each scou­ting team should include at least one woman and one man. In addi­tion, each team will be supported and accom­pa­nied by an HfG student. The goScou­ting offers a networ­king impulse and a stimu­la­ting and enri­ching format, not only for the students but also for the scouts themselves.
