The Pitching Masterclass goes LIVE

To celebrate that I have now coached over 500 startups at over 40 Rheinland Pitches so far since 2013, we decided to stream one of the coaching sessions (well, the theoretical part anyway) live on Facebook. And as we were having a few Spanish startups attending as guests, this time around it was held in English – which made it all the more accessible to stream.

Now, if you also want the really juicy bits of my Pitching Masterclass – the me helping you improve your pitch deck part – apply to the next Rheinland Pitch for free or sign up for one of my free Open Office Hours if you are a startup, or book me in person if you are an organisation, event or corporation.

Here are the slides I used:

Top 10 Startup Delusions @ Maastricht Week of Entrepreneurship (MEWEEK)

Late night presentations, rounding off MEWEEK 2017

Recently I was honored and delighted to be invited back to this year’s Maastricht Week of Entrepreneurship to speak about the mistakes, the false perceptions and beliefs common with first time startup founders and wantrepreneurs; The Top 10 Startup Delusions.

I have a long history with Maastricht and it’s always a pleasure to be back.

Here are the slides I used:

LOL – My buddy Moritz Delbrück of Justix GmbH trolled me in the presentation before me. Well played! :)

Pitching Masterclass & Speaking @ RTL Mediengruppe

Pitching Masterclass @ RTL in Cologne, Germany

Recently I was invited to RTL Mediengruppe to help their journalist school’s InnoLab Week participants pitch their internal ventures with my Pitching Masterclass.

And to speak in front of RTL managers and stakeholders on another topic near and dear to me; How the old game of innovation and growth has changed and how to master the new game at an internal event.

Here are the slides I used for the Pitching Masterclass:

And here are the slides for my talk on the new versus the old game of corporate innovation & growth:

Lean Startup Bootcamp, Baghdad Iraq

Skyping in to Baghdad

Today I was honored to be invited to share from my startup mistakes and coach participants at a Lean Startup Bootcamp for developers in Baghdad, Iraq.

One of the most interesting things I learned was that solving the last mile problem, buying groceries online to have them delivered is also a startup thing in Iraq – and a particular problem with the logistic is that popular exotic fruits are sold at separate shops often far removed from the supermarkets, which leaves the fulfilment and delivery process doubly complex.
