Mid of May, HHL alumni got together in Düsseldorf when trivago was hosting. In this context, HHL alumnus Rolf Schrömgens (K5), co-founder of trivago, had an open dialogue with HHL Professor Stephan Stubner who was joining as well. Both discussed about the development of trivago from a start-up company to a NASDAQ listed enterprise. The dialogue was enriched by insights from the bank’s perspective since an alumnus who accompanied the IPO from the bank side was joining the event as well. We rounded off the get together with some food and drinks while having lively discussions also after the official part. Finally, we got an exclusive peek into the premises of trivago and look forward to seeing also the new premises which will be located at Düsseldorf Hafen from next year onwards.
