Lorena Gallo Larco Chairwoman & Secretary

Hello! I am Lorena Gallo Larco and I’m this year’s chairwoman and secretary of the 36th Beta Business Days board. My role consists on ensuring everyone can perform their responsibilities in order to have this great event take place! I am a 3rd year Biomedical Engineering student with experience in entrepreneurship and project management, as I managed my own small company in my home country. Last year I was part of the Beta Business Days Committee and fell in love with the event, therefore I couldn’t let go of the opportunity to organize it this year. I am incredibly excited for this event to take place and for everyone to enjoy it as much as I did.

My name is Ivar Hesse, this year I am the Business relations 1 of the 36th board of the Beta Business Days. Next to that I am in my last year of industrial engineering management bachelor. I am the dutch part of the two people in charge of acquisition, which gives a great opportunity to learn from new insights offered by this barrier.

Within my role I have a great chance to decide which companies are present and can come in contact with our students.

Moritz Lang Business Relations

Hey there! I am Moritz Lang, one of the Business Relations in the 36th board of the Beta Business Days. My open mindset was the reason for me to move from the countryside of Germany to the truly multinational Groningen. Having a strong interest in technology I decided to pursue a Computing Science degree of which I am currently attending the second year. For my professional future I want to pursue a career in the highly motivated and competitive environment of the consulting branch. For this year’s edition of the BBD I will be responsible for creating a company line-up that ensures that both sides, students and companies, will have the best possible experience. I am looking forward to connect the smart minds of our Faculty with amazing companies- and maybe future employers of our students.
