• Lean Startup Night Munich: Corporate Innovation Models – What actually works?
    IMPORTANT: To participate, you have to get your ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lean-startup-night-munich-corporate-innovation-models-tickets-49344242959 Lean Startup Night is coming to Munich and we're right there with you :-) Corporations face a faster changing business environment these days. Their core business is continuously exposed to market threat from startups and established companies. To fight back, they have acquired new skills to create innovative products and business models, such as Lean Startup, Design Thinking and Agile methodologies. At the same time, existing business still needs to thrive, running a radically different set of management styles and KPIs. Various models have emerged to change how both activities (managing today’s business and discovering tomorrow's business) can be organized. Our panel guests are successfully innovating using different innovation approaches and will share their insights and discuss benefits and trade-offs. You will also meet other Lean innovators and find a valuable network to help you reflect on your own experiences!

  • Startup Success Factor: TEAM
    Moment of Ben: Innovation lessons from AirBNB - Ben O'Hear, Revelate Many startup pitch themselves as "an AirBNB for X". But how did the real thing come into being and grow? Ben has developed an almost unhealthy obsession with the AirBNB story and the sometimes counterintuitive lessons it teaches on how true innovation happens. He will share those insights in this lightning talk. Bringing the A Team - Stephan Wiesener, Apaleo (https://www.apaleo.com/) Serial entrepreneur Stephan Wiesener has been in the tech industry since before the DotCom-Bubble. After many ups and downs, Stephan and his co-founders successfully exited his first startup, Conject. A key learning of that time was the difference a team makes to startup success. So he rejoined with parts of the Conject team to work on his newest venture: Apaleo, a SaaS Cloud for the hotel market. Stephan will share lessons learned from his amazing journey - what’s easier now, what’s changed and how going Lean helps build a great startup.

  • Pivots will happen! The Startup Journey is full of Change
    Meetup on Tour! This time we are downtown in the amazing office of LV 1871 with these talks: What is a Pivot? – Boris Danne, AutoScout24 Pivots happen when things are not working "quite" as expected. But when is the right time to take these life or death decisions? And how do you successfully execute a Pivot? This short talk will give you initial insights into this essential process. The journey of a SaaS Startup - Michael Blazek, Talentry If you start a company, you need to love change. Business models, the founders' roles, markets and challenges all change over time, and you never know where you might end up. Michael will give some insights into Talentry's journey (and pivoting) from the initial idea of a website for crowd-sourced job referrals to a growing HR SaaS company with more than 30 employees. Michael is CTO at Talentry, a SaaS startup which helps companies leverage their employees' social networks to find the best talent for open positions. Together with two fellow students, he founded the company right after finishing his Master’s degree in Computer Science at the Technical University in Munich and the University of Melbourne. (By the way, Talentry is hiring (https://www.talentry.com/en/about-us/career/))

  • AI meets The Big Picture
    Spring is back and so are we. In a month flooded with public vacation, we're changing our schedule for May a bit – hoping many of you will be with us. This meetup is all about AI. We're sure you'll love it! Moment of Ben - „UX of AI: The Rise of Placeonas” AI and in particular Natural Language Processing is enabling a whole new range of ways to interact with digital products. But should you dive straight in a build a bot or an Alexa skill? In this short talk, Ben will give a framework to decide what is best for your users. Manuela Rasthofer – Terraloupe lessons learned Sometimes it’s good to think BIG. Our main speaker Manuela and her team at Terraloupe are doing nothing less than teaching AI to read the earth environment from footage taken from planes or drones, which allows them to identify and measure objects with an unprecedented level of detail. For example: They taught their algorithms to identify glass areas with such precision that their system now outperforms humans. Manuela will share insights and lessons learned from Terraloupes journey evolving a ground-breaking technical innovation into a scalable business model. ....and – as always – you will meet other lean startup practitioners and find a great network to share your own experiences :-)

  • Customers First: LSM Winners Rollercoaster Report
    We're happy to welcome everybody back into a lean 2017 at Werk1 :-) Though winter is freezing, we're digging deeper into GET OUT OF THE BUILDING! Lightning Talk "10 biases of Customer Development" – Thomas Hartman Based on surveys, Hillary Clinton was in the lead the night before the elections. We all know what happened next! But why did the results really deviate that much from the surveys? In this short talk we check out our biases and learn why we get improper results and have customers unintentionally lie to us. And of course we will give you a hint how you can do better. LSM Winning Team Rollercoaster Report The latest Lean Startup Machine Munich featured a plethora of awesome ideas and a crazy lot of customer interviews and experiments. We'll have the Winners share their story how they got their original idea fully invalidated by proper customer research and how they rose like Phoenix from the ashes to win it with less than a day left and everyone else way ahead. ....and – as always – you will meet other lean startup practitioners and find a great network to share your own experiences :-)
