Presenting the Lean Launchpad curriculum to the faculty of the Dokuz Eyül Üniversitesi Izmir, Turkey
Recently I was honored and delighted to be invited to introduce the world’s premier startup entrepreneurship curriculum, The Lean Launchpad, to the faculty to one of the largest universities in Turkey, Dokuz Eyül Üniversitesi.
Here are the slides I used to introduce it to the faculty.
Yesterday I had the pleasure and honor to be invited to present the case why Germany and specifically the state of North-Rhine Westphalia make sense to French startups to a trade delegation from France.
Yesterday saw the first ever winter finals of the Rheinland Pitch event series – and a spectacular success it was!
The Rheinland Pitch is a monthly startup event where regional startups receive professional pitch training and a stage to present themselves to investors, media and the general public – for free. I’ve been involved from the start in April 2013 and thus far I have trained over 270 startups to pitch – and counting!
Once in a while we pick the best of the best to pitch in a grand finals. This summer the first ever Rheinland Pitch finals took place in Düsseldorf and was a rip roaring success and we were very excited to bring the finals to Cologne, hosted by the wonderful Wallraf-Richartz Museum.
