Claude Ritter is the co-founder of Delivery Hero, one of the biggest food delivery companies worldwide and currently valued above 3 Billion Euros. After having departed Delivery Hero in August of 2014, Claude has co-founded a new venture called Book A Tiger. Currently in its Series A, Book A Tiger is one of the leading companies in the highly sought after Home market. However, Claude didn’t become an entrepreneur when he moved to Berlin. He already spent 5 years as the CEO of NetCircle, a Chinese start-up that focussed on developing niche websites.
Having launched 2 companies of such an enormous magnitude, Claude knows how to start companies AND grow them. While both companies come from humble beginnings, there are certain strategies that Claude would employ again to secure growth and others that he wouldn’t use again. He’ll happily share his extensive experience with you during the next Startup Grind Berlin event. Of course, you will have a chance to connect with him after our matey chat.
The interview will be led by Christoph Raethke. Christoph has been active in the digital industry for over 17 years. He has run two semesters of the Founder Institute and established the Berlin Startup Academy — Berlin’s boutique, independent Startup Accelerator. A frequent speaker at international events, he is renowned for his critical and thought-provoking views and will surely make for an interesting interviewer.
We are very excited host the event in the charming, new espresso lounge of the St. Oberholz cafe. Expect a magical, cosy and delightful evening, featuring refined liquor.
