Webilea Event: The new local heroes

Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and the likes are ruling the world (at least the digital part
of it). A closer look on the screen of our smartphones reveals a somehow different picture: Where do you buy your train ticket, look up the weather forecast or find the next best party? Right. All business is local and this is even more true since concerns about the concentration of data (and power) within few global players rise.
 
At our next webilea event you will find out more about why there is a reasonable chance that the next wave of digitization will be driven by local heroes and hear from entrepreneurs how they want to make their business case strive.
 
When: 6 September 2017 - 18:30 (doors open)

Presentations

Implementing new digital business models is a complex venture on uncertain grounds, for local companies and multinationals alike. Philipp Bärfuss, the former CTO of Magnolia and founder of «woowai» and his business partner Christian Baechler, a digital marketeer and storyteller, will show why digital business ideas tend to fail and how proven methods can maximize the chances of success.
 
Jonas Schwarz will talk about his new venture, mAsk, a free app, which allows users to ask questions and receive answers from verified users. The startup capitalizes on mechanisms and the advantage of human swarm intelligence to allow people to ask and respond to questions anonymously. 
 
Fabrizio Fracassi will present his participatory media and online networking application, Fuel, and tell us what it can do for education and personal training - as well as for fun. 

Isn't it challenging to meet the most relevant people in such conferences? Maxime Vitrey will present you the Papott solution which will unleash human interactions in events and anywhere else.

20:00 Q/A and Discussion
20:30 Drinks & Networking

 
Registration is free of charge but compulsory by 4 September.
