In a few days, I’ll be in Munich at a three-day festival that connects 5,000 founders, investors, startup enthusiasts and all other decision-makers of the startup ecosystem: Bits and Pretzels. I hope you will join my keynote at 14:30 at the Pretzels stage on October 1st.
Founders, investors and startup enthusiasts are the adventurers of the business world.
From dragging heavy sleds to the North Pole to sailing small yachts through some of the world’s deadliest oceans, I’ve pushed myself and others to the ends of the earth, testing the limits of human potential. I’ve been a leader of teams in some of the toughest conditions on the planet. This includes three record-breaking expeditions to the North Pole and two long–haul sailing trips to Antarctica. In 2013 I rowed, sailed and dragged a small boat 2000 miles across the infamous Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic.
Although the physical effort of entrepreneur compared to that of an adventurer may differ- effort, risks, exhaustion, grit, determination but also smart decision making on partners and technology may be the same. At Bits and Pretzels, I will tell you why and how security and safety are my number one priorities and I’ll go into the importance of secure data even in the middle of the worlds’ most remote ocean and how inevitably this data would save my life. Will it save your business? Join me on October 1st!
