Siltronic sponsors business-minded high-school students

  • Siltronic backing business-oriented high school in Pfarrkirchen, Germany.

  • Donation of 30,000 Euros made

By contributing a total of 30,000 Euros to this project over three years, Siltronic AG is backing the first business high school in Germany. The school, in Pfarrkirchen, received an award in the “Germany - A Country of Ideas” competition held in 2007. This unique school prepares students not only for university entrance, but also for a career in business. The innovative project, under the direction of Peter Brendel, came to the attention of the Siltronic executive board, who decided to donate a total of 30,000 Euros over a period of three years. Executive board member Dr. Wilhelm Sittenthaler today presented a check to the chairman of “The Friends of the Bavarian Business High School” Reserl Sem (also a member of the Bavarian Parliament) and the school principal.

“In our eyes, the training of young people for future careers should have top priority,” Sittenthaler stressed. “We already cooperate closely with universities, but we must start helping younger students still at school. We therefore decided to back this promising project and offer our company’s support” he added. “Siltronic AG’s generosity is a great honor for everyone at the Bavarian Business High School.” We are very pleased to add this Bavarian company to the list of 30 sponsors from all sectors of the economy” replied Brendel, the school principal. “I am certain that Siltronic’s commitment and expertise will stimulate the entrepreneurial spirit of our school and prepare students for their future careers," enthused the school principal.

Siltronic will further assist the young visionaries and entrepreneurs of tomorrow by offering internships, specialist training and lectures.

At the school in Pfarrkirchen, students receive a year of business training, including an internship and a sponsor from the business world. All this will instill creativity, independence and the entrepreneurial spirit into the up-and-coming entrepreneurs and grant them valuable insights into the world of business. This new concept has long proven successful in Sweden, which has 50 such high schools!
