To call Andi Thümmler (Founder and CEO, Corporate Finance Partners Group) unique would be an understatement. He embodies the “work hard, party hard” better than anyone: reknown for his outrageous parties and eccentric anecdotes involving a Darth Vader costume as well as for an impressive list of deals managed by CFP, which includes most of the biggest exits in German startup history, including Brands4friends, DailyDeal, Jamba, Qype, Xing, and Zanox.
Demonstrating a taste for the finer things in life as well as unmatched business acumen, privately Andi has recently build his own whisky destillery — while CFP, now in its fifteenth year, is now expanding globally, keeping its strict focus on the tech sector and mid-size deals.
We are looking forward to welcome Andi on stage to share his story and give you the chance to connect with him afterwards.
The interview will be led by Christoph Raethke. Christoph has been working in the digital industry for over 17 years. He has run two semesters of the Founder Institute and is the founder of the Berlin Startup Academy — Berlin’s boutique, independent Startup Accelerator. In addition to that, Christoph is a frequent speaker at international events and renown for his critical and thought-provoking views.
Our event takes place in the St. Oberholz apartments. As the central meeting point of Berlin's digital scene, there could be no better setting for our intimate “fireside chat” interview format.
