Portrait of CBS founders: Evelyn Wagner, Paula Vorbeck and Carmine Siena of “Compounder”


Paula Vorbeck and Evelyn Wagner, bachelor students in "International Business" and managing directors of Compounder, casually came up with their business idea while talking about international study application procedures. They quickly came to the conclusion that the application process at German universities was unnecessarily complicated instead of mapping the entire application process on one platform. With the help of Carmine Siena, Master student in "Digital Marketing" and IT specialist at Compounder, as well as the consultants of the university start-up network hochschulgründernetz e.V., they put this idea into practice and convinced the jury of the "Ideenwettbewerb der Kölner Hochschulen" ("Ideas Competition of Cologne Universities"): They took second place in the competition for the best business idea).
