Instead, these young people wanted to create an opportunity for goods to be ordered online but then delivered climate-neutrally by bicycle from local shops. They drew up a comprehensive business plan on how to set up an online shop and the necessary logistics. Instead, a successful alumnus of their school, who was the founder, advised them to find a solution that was as simple as possible but could be implemented immediately. As a result, they found a bookstore that was willing to cooperate, took orders by SMS and delivered the books by bicycle – within a week they had already received several hundred orders. The scaling overtaxed the young entrepreneurs and as the final exams approached, they unfortunately had to give up their company due to lack of time. Afterwards Konstantin developed a possibility to practice on his mobile phone via Facebook for the maths matura in order to be able to use the way to school effectively.
After a year of community service with street children in Ecuador, he founded an initiative that collected donations to provide these children with a warm meal at school and a mentoring program with students from Quito University. As a result, about three out of five street children will now be studying after graduation.
According to Konstantin, schools can best support their pupils in their impulses if they give them the necessary freedom, encourage them and deal positively with mistakes, i.e. see mistakes as learning opportunities and not as failure.
