November, 9: Karl-Michael Molzer – "Cloud Commodities – The new oil market?"

Karl-Michael Molzer, Co-Founder & CFO of CCEX Cloud Commodities Exchange GmbH, will discuss the value of cloud services and why he believes that it is the most important asset class of the next years. He left his promising investment banker career to build CCEX. The start-up is set to create a New Global Asset Class – Cloud Commodities. Karl-Michael Molzer confidently explains, "The commoditization of Cloud Services – currently, a USD 170 bn non-transparent market with a growth rate of c. 19% p.a. – is our goal. We are mainly doing the same what was done in the 70’s with oil and in the 90’s with electricity." In this session, Karl-Michael Molzer will tell us about the challenges and opportunities of this ambitious project.

Past Events

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"
