From a Bachelor's Idea to Your Own Start-Up

For the two co-founders, it all started through their joint bachelor thesis in 2019, where the idea of Xeem was born. It quickly became clear to both of them: "We want to realize Xeem to offer young talents a contemporary access to companies and to make sure that we shape our future together!"

With the help of their passion for the idea and two scholarships, they launched Xeem, alongside their master's studies.

Together with Cornelius, who already brought years of experience from the IT world, they founded Xeem in 2021.

Since then, we are incredibly proud to bring together numerous young people and diverse companies across Germany through Xeem.
