Spreadshirt: Making Decisions Under Uncertainty
Limited Capacity seats available

TeamShirts is a successful Spreadshirt spin-off and helps groups of all sorts to create their own clothing in a fast and straightforward way. The launch of the brand TeamShirts marked the latest step towards diversification as a growth driver for the print-on-demand merchandising company.

TeamShirts is aimed specifically at the growing number of group purchasers, such as school and sports teams, stag and hen parties as well as organisations purchasing for employee events, with prices and services tailored especially for these target groups. 

As a committed business unit in the Spreadshirt family, TeamShirts has the vibrant start-up spirit and the community can be excited how the success story will be continued. However this was a long way. Even in an established company as a leader of a start-up you have to make risky decisions. There are failures and successes - but most important there are learnings. This session will be about the quest to find the right triggers for growth. 

The session will be framed by a guided tour through the Spreadshirt HQ + snacks and drinks.

GRUENDELPARTNER & Saxess AG: IT-Verträge im Startup (DE)
Limited Capacity seats available

Eine effektive Vertragsgestaltung ist insbesondere im IT-Sektor unverzichtbar. Strategische Überlegungen hinsichtlich der Wahl des Vertragstyps bei der Softwareerstellung, der Überlassung von Software sowie bei der Softwarepflege stehen dabei am Anfang. So ist beispielsweise zu entscheiden, ob eine zu vertreibende Software den Kunden als Kauf- oder Mietsoftware, z.B. in einem Software-as- a-Service-Modell überlassen wird. Ferner dürfen zentrale Inhalte zu Leistungspflichten, Nutzungsrechten, Mängelgewährleistung oder zur Haftungsbegrenzung in solchen Verträgen nicht fehlen.

In diesem Seminar führen Matthias Lehmann, Vorstand der Saxess AG, und Florian Helbig, Rechtsanwalt bei GRUENDELPARTNER, durch die verschiedenen Vertragstypen mit ihren wesentlichen Regelungsinhalten und berichten aus Unternehmer- und Anwaltssicht, welche Fallstricke bei der Erstellung und Verhandlung von IT-Verträgen zu beachten sind.

Die SAXESS AG ist Spezialist für Analysen und Informationsvisualisierung von Unternehmensdaten. Die Softwarelösung fidas stellt Beteiligungsmanagern und Beteiligungscontrollern in Unternehmen und Kommunen aussagekräftige Informationen für die wertorientierte Steuerung ihrer Beteiligungen bereit.

GRUENDELPARTNER ist eine der führenden multidisziplinären Wirtschaftskanzleien Mitteldeutschlands mit Büros in Leipzig, Jena und Berlin. Neben der Begleitung von Finanzierungs- und M&A-Transaktionen berät Florian Helbig als Salary Partner maßgeblich IT-Unternehmen zu allen Rechtsfragen rund um Software-, Hardware- und Internetprojekte.

MountLytics: Customer Intelligence in Tourism
Limited Capacity seats available

The situation in the tourism industry is quite clear: on one hand, tourism organizations don't know their customers/guests anymore - they're not able to deliver personalized experiences; and on the other hand, these organizations have multiple data silos containing relevant guest information. The problem is that they lack know-how on what to do, facing budget constraints at the same time.

In this session, Mountlytics present their way on not just delivering another tool, but providing a concrete solution for our tourism customers. They break up data silos and allow for deep insights and personal communication.

You should join our session if you ...
  • ... are tired of "big data buzz words" and want to hear about working solutions
  • ... want to disrupt the tourism industry
  • ... want to learn about our technological approach that is transferrable to other industries
  • ... want to join our team (current job openings in development, concept, design, marketing, ...)

Sons of Motion Pictures: Marketing im Youtubezeitalter - Haben Foto & Print ausgedient? (DE)
Limited Capacity seats available

Corporate Marketing ist stetig im Wandel und verlagert sich immer weiter von der analogen in die digitale Welt. Neben Texten und Fotos reihen sich vor allem auch Videoproduktionen vermehrt in die Kommunikation und Werbung eines Unternehmens ein. Haben Videos vielleicht sogar das Potential, Texte und Fotos nicht nur zu ergänzen, sondern immer weiter zu verdrängen? Und was hat YouTube damit zu tun?

In unserem Vortrag wollen wir dieser Sache auf den Grund gehen. Wir zeigen euch, welch riesiges Potential ein Video heutzutage für das Marketing eines Unternehmens haben kann. Dabei wollen wir vor allem folgende Fragen beantworten:

  • Wie haben sich Preis und Nachfrage bei Videoproduktionen in den letzten 20 Jahren verändert?
  • Welche signifikanten Vorteile haben Videos, im Vergleich zu Text und Foto?
  • Was für Videoproduktionen stehen heutzutage für den Mittelstand zur Verfügung?
