Our Work

Max and Niklas from WHU's Entrepreneurship Center identified the need to allocate and leverage the existing resources within the WHU alumni network more efficiently, especially within the entrepreneurial ecosystem. They partnered with us, an alumni-founded company, to develop a technology platform that connects WHU founders with the alumni community for mentorship, fundraising, and other resources. Thus, the platform will primarily help scale and automate the exceptional community work that Max & his team have already been doing. Our automation and scaling efforts address the numerous written introductions between founders and investors and the identification of experts for specific advisory and mentorship areas. Although the WHU EC x Sonic collaboration has just recently started, we are confident that we will help many WHU founders by making the WHU community resources more accessible and allocating them more efficiently.

Project Outline

"Working with Sonic is a really pleasant experience for us. The Sonic team approached the co-creation process in a very structured way, making it easy for our team and me to focus on our product vision. Most importantly, Sonic is not only thinking about how to execute our ideas but is challenging us where necessary and coming up with ideas which I am convinced will make the product even better."
