Keynoting at the opening of the digiHUB Aachen

Keynoting @ opening of digiHUB Aachen

Recently I was honored and delighted to be invited to keynote the opening of the new digital HUB in Aachen, where I spoke about why and how corporations engage with startups (and sometimes vice versa).

As a known startup evangelist, the venue was perhaps the most fitting I’ve spoken at so far. The event was held in the digital church, a church converted to a coworking space!

I think it’s safe to say the opening sparked some interest… The digital church was packed!

That guy…

These were the slides I used:

Moderating @ Hannover Messe 2017

Panel

Recently I was invited by NRW.INVEST to moderate a panel discussion on how to build a business with innovation at the Polish-German Startup Forum at the Hannover Messe 2017.

From the official description of the event:

Poland has made an impressive economic leap within the past two decades. The country did not overlook the global trends and became an established start-up center for Central Eastern Europe. The great catch-up demand in Polish economy, not only attracted investment, but also created enormous creativity and ambition among young generation of entrepreneurs who have recognized the key to international success in innovation. The ever-growing Polish startup ecosystem is just one of the evidence of the rapid development in this area.
The aim of the event is to exchange experiences between startup developers and large and medium business from Poland and Germany, as well as, introduce German investors to the potential of Polish companies.
