Simon Hohentanner

Job title: Co-Founder & COO

Project: StudySmarter

Simon studied Mechanical Engineering at TUM. He also took part in the Manage&More program at UnternehmerTUM. Seeing a lot of his friends fail in university, the idea to provide a solution was born. He cares about product development, cloud infrastructure and data analysis.

High drop-out rates are a major problem across Europe. We aim to collaborate with people and institutions from all over Europe to empower every European student to excel in their studies with StudySmarter. Thus, I’m especially happy that StudySmarter was chosen as one of the winners, to hear the thoughts and ideas from young Entrepreneurs and to make StudySmarter even better."
