  • Temporäre Raumpionier-Landebahn in Weißwasser

    Hafenstube Weißwasser

    Träumst Du auch von einem Leben auf dem Land? Wo Du dem Sternenhimmel ganz nah bist und Deine Füße auf echter Erde stehen? Wir haben selbst lange in Berlin gelebt, sind 2010 mit unserer Kreativagentur in die Oberlausitz gezogen und genießen seitdem das Landleben so sehr, dass wir unsere Begeisterung in die Welt hinaus tragen. Hier gibt es noch viel günstigen Raum wie Sand am leeren Neiße-Strand. Am 6. Oktober 2018 eröffnen wir für sieben volle Stunden die Temporäre Raumpionier-Landebahn in der Hafenstube Weißwasser. Hier treffen bereits ansässige Raumpioniere auf potentielle neue. Stadtpflanzen sprechen mit Landeiern. Raumpioniere erzählen ihre Geschichten, die Mut machen, den eigenen Weg zu finden. Mit Dr. Wolf Schmidt (Mecklenburger AnStiftung und Initiative Neue Ländlichkeit) reden wir darüber, ob Landleben Luxus ist, Professor Gerhard Henkel (Humangeograph und „Dorfpapst“) argumentiert, warum das Dorf gerettet werden muss, der Bürgermeister von Nebelschütz, Thomas Zschornak, erzählt von der erfolgreichen Entwicklung seiner Gemeinde, der Autor Udo Tiffert liest eine Geschichte vom Ankommen und Matthias Rompe (pimp my bauernhof) weiß aus eigener Erfahrung, wie man ein Bauernhofprojekt startet, wo dabei die Glücksräder zu finden sind und dass das Landleben nicht nur ein herrlicher Sonnenuntergang am Abend, sondern auch viel kalter Matsch am Morgen sein kann. Während einer Gesprächsrunde mit Lena Steudtner (Steudtnerhof), Franziska Schubert (Lebens(t)räume e. V. und Landtagsabgeordnete DIE GRÜNEN), Axel Krüger (Machtwort und vieles mehr) und Prof. Gerhard Henkel können Fragen gestellt werden. Sebastian Krüger, head of hafenbar, macht eine Führung durch das teilweise noch leer stehende Industriegelände.

  • Raumpioniere Oberlausitz zu Besuch in Berlin

    H:32 Scaling Spaces

    „Ein Leben auf dem Land? Was? Raus aus der Stadt? Meinen Kiez, meine Freunde, den ganzen Kultur- und Freizeitbetrieb aufgeben? Nee. Ich bin kein Selbstversorger oder so. Ich will auch nicht in der Einöde verkümmern!“ Für uns war das auch eine Zeitlang so. Aufs Land zu ziehen war keine Option. Dieses auch deshalb, weil weder wir auf die Idee gekommen sind noch jemand anderes diese Idee an uns heran getragen hat. Das Land als blinder Fleck in der Wahrnehmung. Arielle und ich sind vor 10 Jahren (nach 10 Jahren Berlin mit allem drum & dran) in die Oberlausitz gezogen. Etwas naiv, etwas unwissend aber positiv eingestimmt und mit Lust auf Veränderung im Gepäck. Uns hat das winzige Dorf „jwd“, in dem wir gelandet sind, gefallen und auch die Aussicht mit unserer „Kreativagentur“ zu punkten. Mit den Themen Demografiewandel und Strukturwandel von Anfang an konfrontiert, haben wir entdeckt, dass es Spaß machen kann, sich zu engagieren. So ist aus unserer eigenen Erfahrung das Projekt Raumpionierstation Oberlausitz entstanden. Kurz: Wir beraten Zuzügler & Rückkehrer aus unserer ganz subjektiven Sicht heraus und unterstützen alle Landlustigen ihren Entschluss umzusetzen. Und davon gibt es viele. Sehr viele. Am 6. Oktober veranstalten wir die Temporäre Raumpionier-Landebahn in Weißwasser. Dort sprechen Stadtpflanzen mit Landeiern, Raumpioniere erzählen ihre Geschichten, die Mut machen, den eigenen Weg zu finden und u. a. mit Dr. Wolf Schmidt & Prof. Gerhard Henkel – beides Dorfbewohner – reden wir darüber, ob Landleben Luxus ist oder viel kalter Matsch am Morgen. Am 11.9. in Berlin könnt Ihr schon mal Spürung aufnehmen. Wir freuen uns auf Euch! Arielle & Jan Mehr zur Veranstaltung findet Ihr hier: http://www.raumpioniere-oberlausitz.de/veranstaltung/ und über uns: https://www.zeit.de/gesellschaft/2018-07/umzug-land-grossstadt-mietpreise-beratung-raumpioniere

  • How to find external tech-partners & assess the quality of cooperation?

    Event by SIBB e.V. Please register here: https://how_to_find_the_right_tech_partner.eventbrite.de/ How to find the proper international Partner in the High-Tech World? During this event we will focus on what is most important in cooperation with external tech-partners & software developers! And will present you 10 excellent pitches of Softwarehouses! The whole process of finding a tech-partner or a software house can be overwhelming - same as picking the best product on a fruit market. How do you even start? Search Google? For what? "Best Softwarehouse"; "Great applications" ? It could work, but then what? How do you choose the right partner? Communication, quality, experience or price? All of these factors of course! Key Takeaways of the event: - How to distinguish “The Best Software House” from another “The Best Dev Shop” on the market? - How to finish a project successful? Tools and workflow in project management, people running the project, technologies and processes of deployment. - What are market specific requirements: portfolio of referrals, experience and credibility, the ways and language of communication? Background: "Digitalisierung" became one of the most common trends, not only in Germany - many companies in Germany hope for new opportunities through digitization. Because companies’ business models are changing, digitization is a cross-industry case. This gives a lot of business opportunities to local companies, their software developers and their digital products. But do local companies have enough resources to cover all this demand? It is common knowledge that the German market for IT services is suffering from a severe shortage of IT skills. This demand for IT talent creates a huge demand for strong partnerships among companies, service-providers and plenty of opportunities for any provider of near- & outsourcing services as well. Highlight: SIBB Project LOOKOUT will present examples of such cooperation on an international level with the closest neighbour country of Berlin - Poland. Agenda: 17:30 - Registration 18:00 - Welcome Note 18:10 - Firechat: I. How to find a reasonable tech partner? - When should the company Hire- in, when Outsource? - How to differentiate software houses? - How the matching system should work to create win-win for both parties? II. How to measure the success of the cooperation between the client and the software house? - Quality in software development - how to measure results? - Remote cooperation - challenges and communication issues? III. The status of current cooperation between companies in Berlin and Poland: - DOES & DON’T - Opinions about the neighbors Market – Myths vs Reality DE-PL - How to enter German market to meet the local expectations? - Few ideas of connecting DE with PL (example: cooperation with local designers). 18:30 - Key Note: When “yes” means “yes” and which part of “no” didn’t you understand – a few words about the differences in communication and business culture in Germany. 18:40 - Pitch – Deck 10 Softwarehouses present themselves (max 3 min / 3 slides) to the audience. 19:10 - Networking at the Mini Stands 19:30 - Get Together & Grill on the Rooftop with View!
