About this event

For many startups there comes a time when external capital is needed. One possibility to explore is to get an external investor on board, often in form of a VC (Venture Capital) fund. One of the newest and most interesting in Germany actually comes from Hamburg: Planet A Ventures. What makes them special is their total dedication to use venture capital to save the world. Planet A's vision is to find and support startups that will have a positive impact on our environmnet - while still making a profit.

Our guest in this fireside chat will be Fridtjof Detzner, co-founder and general manager. Fridtjof started his first startup in his teenage years, which eventually became the famous website buidling platform Jimdo. After a mindblowing trip in 2017 (and a couple of other startups founded) he set on a journey to save the world - with venture capital.

In our fireside chat we'll talk about how impact driven startups can get the best funding available, how money might save the wrld and of course about all the ups and downs of being a founder with a mission.
