Charlotte Bienhaus

Project Manager

Idea Phase & InnoStartBonus

Creating space for encounters, bringing people together and bringing about progress is what drives Charlotte Bienhaus. After studying law at the Technical University of Dresden, she decided to change her perspective and began working as an event and project manager at a venue in Cologne, organizing numerous formats such as workshops and seminars. In parallel to this, she completed her Master's degree at the CBS International Business School in the field of business development and acquired comprehensive know-how on business development and innovative markets. Convinced of Saxony's potential, the native Hessian finally moved back to Dresden to offer support to motivated founders nationwide as part of futureSAX GmbH.
