  • PR-Do-ityourself! Now, the guerilla way, WITHOUT MONEY

    • Was wir unternehmen werden Hi everyone, this time I would like to invite you to a workshop meetup about the topic PR for startups. The agenda is as follows: 1) 17:45 networking, you may bring your business cards 2) 18:00 Guerilla-PR as it's best, 200 slides showing how Guerilla-PR did work fantastically for my company. It will work for you as well. Pls see also the previous Guerilla-PR-Meetups I am Meinrad Müller, 64, semi-retired, tired of just feeding the ducks at lake Wannsee. Why not share my life-experiences with youg people? I started my own business at age 21 in 1975 where there was no internet, no WLAN, no fax, no mobile phone. One wonders how they could fly to the moon without IOT and ai :-) In order to get Guerilla-PR I developed 200 windows tools (gadgets) to get the press' attention. Short 4-minute intro - video (german) Meetup will be in English, heavy accent included (I did live in Canada for a while). http://www.meinradmueller.de (my second career as public speaker) Targeting the public via Guerilla PR is the easiest way to go. In the past 30 years about 7000 press articles appeared about my tiny company with 40 employees before I sold it. How did I achieve this fantastic PR results? Sharing this knowledge with STARTUPS will be a pleasure to me. - how you can send out your next press release yourself next morning after you learned the tricks at this meetup - how you dare running totally "crazy" PR campaigns at no costs - how to identify overlooked ideas (but interesting to the press) in your startup - how to send PR-releases yourself (even with typos) the press simply can't resist to prints - how to impress potential investors with the PR attention you got - how to attract more customers, as PR enhances your credibility immediately not spending a single cent for advertising or marketing - how to get into TV and radio shows with "out of the box" guerilla thinking - how to understand in 60 minutes what stories the press people love - how to "use" the press as a free market research tool at no cost at all - how you will profit greatly by making press people happy at no costs In order to prove guerilla PR works much, much better than "conservative and boring" PR, you are going to see many of my PR-stories which got printed. No boring theory on PR. Just "live" experience. You will hear PR tricks you won't find in a book OUT OF THE BOX THINKING MUST BECOME YOUR MINDSET. See you in March.

  • The way blockchain technology and crypto currency will change the world in 2018

    Hi everyone, After a super exciting meetup around the topic blockchain and cryptocurrency in November, which arose a huge interest, I would like to invite you to our February meetup around the topic Blockchian, with some prominent speakers from the scene. The agenda is as follows: 1) 18:30 doors open 2) 19:00-20:00 “NEM Blockchain use cases and implementation” Kristof Van de Reck Blockchains are revolutionizing the world. Blockchains are becoming the world’s most reliable, powerful and cost-effective way to manage financial assets, documents and contracts. Until now, blockchain implementation for business has come at substantial risks and a range of complexities. Adapting existing company networks to be compatible with blockchain networks has proven difficult. But now, there is a better way to implement an enterprise blockchain data system that minimizes complexity and integrate with existing systems. Meet NEM. While others are cloning existing blockchains, NEM’s team of professional developers build a new code base from the ground up. It has been designed with a focus on integration with enterprises. They call them smart assets. NEM’s smart assets system is configurable to manage almost anything – financial instruments, supply chains, notarizations, ownership records etc. Businesses worldwide have already adopted NEM and tests across millions of accounts have demonstrated why it is one of the best preforming systems in the industry. Kristof Van de Reck is founding member, Council member and Regional head Europe of NEM.io Foundation. Since he first learned about blockchain technology, he has been focusing on how blockchain can be implemented in existing businesses as well as the opportunities it facilitates for new business models. In his role as Regional Head Europe, him and his team are responsible for the the introduction, education and promotion of the NEM Blockchain technology to industries, governments and academia throughout Europe and beyond. twitter is @kvandereck 3) 20:00-21:00 “Future of crypto currencies” Ina Samovich Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of crypto currency was intended to develop electronic cash. The price volatility and speculative opportunities brought worldwide popularity to many crypto currencies in 2017. Nevertheless, the situation will change in 2018. Soon, the survived and more technological crypto currencies will serve civilization in completely different way allowing people and businesses interact without intermediaries, evenly redistribute wealth around the globe and change the structure of the international financial system. New financial infrastructure and institutional players will create a bridge between traditional and crypto economies Ina Samovich is Co-Founder and CEO of CopPay blockchain platform for cryptopayments. After graduating in Finance from Florida International University and obtaining MBA degree, she was managing retail and service business for 7 years. In 2016, she realized the future advantages of crypto currencies and decided to implement it in her business. This was the beginning of the journey which has resulted in the creation of crypto payment platform and possibility to integrate crypto economy and real businesses. 4) 21:00-21:45 "Blockchain-the 'holy grail' for supply chain management" Samantha Radocchia Blockchain, or any emerging technology for that matter, isn’t a matter of if, but when. It’s an inevitability. So, with that in mind, it’s extremely important for businesses, leaders, and individuals to recognize the inevitability of technological advancement and harness the power that comes from change for the betterment of society. Blockchain’s proposition to the world is that of decentralized trust.Nowhere do we see the positive impacts of blockchain more than in global supply chains. With blockchain, we can eliminate counterfeit drugs that are killing the recipients—often disadvantaged folks in underdeveloped countries. With blockchain, we can eliminate conflict minerals and blood diamonds. With blockchain, we can reduce food waste and spoilage. With blockchain, we can hold each other to the highest standards of humanity and ensure that our supply chains are transparent, ethical, humane, and sustainable. Meet Chronicled, the 1st company to leverage IoT, AI and blockchain technologies to power end-to-end smart supply chain solutions.It is using blockchain technology for the secure exchange of physical assets.Its mission is to create the world’s most trusted Internet of Things (IoT) and supply chain ecosystems.As the leading pioneer of non-financial blockchain solutions since 2014 and a Founding Member of the Trusted IoT Alliance, its team of blockchain leaders and engineers has paved the way for how enterprises and consumers engage with the two technologies today. Samantha Radocchia is founding member and CMO of Chronicled inc. She learned to program when she learned to read, started her first business, an inventory management and marketing software company in 2011, picking up degrees at Colgate University and NYU along the way. She likes to think of herself a tech industry triple threat: academic, developer, and entrepreneur. 5) 21:45-onwards Networking and Drinks Looking forward to having another great meetup with you 😊 Petya

  • How to Become a Digital Millionaire

    Space Shack

    Hi everyone, after a long break, we are coming back to Space Shack, with a super modern, extraterrestrial ambiente. This time with a very exciting topic, which deeply moves many people, namely: “How to become digital millionaire. I am also very pleased to announce our amazing speakers, who are experts and startupfounders from San Francisco and London. The agenda is as it follows: 19:00 doors open 19:30-19:35 Petya "Introduction" 19:35-20:35: David La Rue „Crypto Millionaire: coming soon: how digital currencies can make you really rich“ I am David La Rue from San Francisco, California in the United States. My professional focus is Trading Systems, Active Directory, IT-Security, and Blockchain Technology. I am the managing partner from La Rue Consulting GbR. We are a small consulting firm out of Marburg Germany. Our company specializes in the fields of Agile Project Management, IT Security, Security Awareness, Trading Systems, Active Directory, and E-Mail Security. We have had the great success of completing large scale projects for Deutsche Telekom, Deutsche Post, DHL, KfW, Deutsche Bank, Novartis, Hewlett Packard, thyssenkrupp, and Western Union. For the last few years my passion and focus has been around Cryptocurrencies. I have been working on building a startup to teach people about the amazing new possibilities of Blockchain and all the exiting new possibilities that are growing every day. I am a firm believer that this emerging technology will revolutionize the world and bring wealth and financial freedom to everyone on the planet. Coming from the United States so many people speak of the American Dream. I can say I am living the American Dream in Europe. I have the great honor to rub shoulders with people every day that are making an impact all around them. Taking this dream one step further I believe a whole new Dream has begun and it is not specific to one country, it is based on the world. I call it the World Dream. Emerging technologies are making it possible for anyone with a great idea can create and deploy and easily have a global audience. Putting the tools into the hands of everyone and say go for it, sure paints a very interesting picture of possibilities. What makes this so interesting is when you share your success and give the knowledge further you are in turn helping your growth as well. It is like a small snowball rolling down a freshly snowed on mountain. As it rolls down the hill it continues to grow. This is how I see the future. We as business leaders need to get the message out there. Take the time to show the people the right way to become successful under their own power. Give them the motivation to create great ideas that will help our world in this time of change.

I have a first class honours Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cardiff University, and have studied at both Ashridge and Schumacher College in recent years to build a greater understanding of growth mindset and systems thinking. After 12 years of hard slog, I exited as MD and shareholder from a £12m turnover environmental company called Ecosurety that grew from 15 to 50 people strong in the last 5 years. Prior to this I was a program manager at Honeywell. I also co-founded the Student Windsurfing Association in 2000, which continues to run the largest windsurfing events in the UK. The universe has an interesting way of helping us change course, and after coming across the concept of 'abundance' in late 2014, I am now pursuing my passion for how exponential technologies can positively impact our lives.I like working with disruptive companies that focus on optimizing the relationship between strategy, people and technology to create an abundant yet sustainable world. I also believe the existing paradigm of business culture is stifling creativity. So I'd like to do something about it! I am now a partner in RED Academy, helping to launch our third school in London following the successful launch of Vancouver and Toronto. We specialize in UX, UI Design, Digital Marketing and Web & App devolvement. I believe in the importance of life long learning and he need to redefine education to prepare us for the exponential future. I am also mentor start-ups and Chair a micro-finance charity called Deki which has a fantastic mission to create a world of opportunity, not poverty through a hand up, not a hand out. My wife and I have a huge passion for kitesurfing, which provides us with essential down-time to get headspace from the day-to-day. I was the first person to windsurf the English Channel in 2003 (in 1 hour 24 mins), and I attempted a kitesurf from Spain to Morocco in 2017 (the wind dropped)! I spent a week on Necker Island in 2016 with Richard Branson, brain storming for Virgin Unite in the morning and kitesurfing in the afternoon. I subsequently ran my own trial event in Tarifa, Spain to see if the same concept could work for leading European CEOs who want to give back a piece of the pie. It does! I have been on the most amazing journey and have found the transition from a competitive to creative mindset to be an incredible awakening. Business leaders should encourage a culture of self-discovery and personal growth to maximize creativity and therefore productivity. I believe the most successful leaders of the future will be those with the greatest capacity to share.
