October 12: Caleb Screpnek – "Creating an Innovation Ecosystem"

Most people recognise 'community' to be a symptom of innovation, but what if it's the source? Much more than just a buzzword, 'community' has been the key to building the largest creative playground for startups and corporates in Berlin. Caleb Screpnek, Program Manager at Factory Berlin, will discuss the challenges and conditions involved in building a community where corporates and startups alike collaborate creatively.

September 14: Vahe Andonians – "Thinking like an AI native"

Everyone is talking about digital natives – but shouldn’t we be wondering about AI natives? We already expect Siri or Alexa to anticipate our desires, and face recognition opens up new opportunities of everyday interaction with machines. In this session, Vahe Andonians will get us up to date on what AI can already do and what to expect in the near future. The question is: Are your jobs and business models up to the competition?

August 10: Daniel Höfelmann – "How to drive innovation in the finance industry"

Innovation management is tricky. Innovation rarely comes over night in a flash of genius – least of all in corporate environments with established departments, hierarchies and so on. However, businesses need innovation in order to stay competitive. Globalization, digitalization and agile startups have been creating a sense of urgency for innovation in the last years. Our alumnus Daniel Höfelmann knows all about these chances and challenges as he has driven innovation in different banks for several years. He will share his skills in our second nutshell session.

July 13: Gergely Szertics – "Unlocking the potential of AI"

Artificial intelligence has enormous disruptive potential and opens up many new business opportunities. Yet, it requires a change in mindset and business priorities to be able to unlock this potential. In this session, Gergely Szertics gives an overview of the current state of this technology and how to make the best use of the business opportunities it can bring. It focuses on questions and applications of a business leader and highlights the most important shifts required in leadership mindset.
