With over 20 years of experience, Jörg Rheinboldt is easily one of the best-known insiders of the German tech startup scene. He’s a serial entrepreneur who co-founded Denkwerk, one of the very first web agencies, as well as the eBay-acquired Alando marketplace with the Samwer brothers and Betterplace, Germany’s leading donations platform.
Jörg is active as an angel investor with M10, funding companies with a goal of long-term profitability instead of short-term exits. As of last year, he helps mentoring and advancing new startups as CEO of the Axel Springer Plug and Play accelerator.
Throughout all of this diverse efforts, his guiding questions have remained the same: What does success look like? How do we get there?
We are looking forward to welcome Jörg 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.
