Company: Rebel Technologies
School: University of St. Gallen
With his EO core value of “boldly go,” Simon Hofer quickly learned that execution is the key to entrepreneurship and didn’t waste a single day working to bring his idea to life. Rebel Technologies is a proximity-based social network and marketplace app dedicated to ease communication for college students. Despite the high concentration of students on campus, the Rebel App allows students to reach others to trade and engage in other activities outside of their normal social circles. In three years, Hofer envisions Rebel Technologies as the leading platform for student interactions in Europe and the US.
