During this SGVirtual, we will be hosting Peter POEHLE and Gilles POULLES i.e. the co-founders of SponsorMyEvent.
They will share with us their insights and memories from their entrepreneurial journey from the content sector to the event area.
I'm an entrepreneur: the co-founder and CEO of SponsorMyEvent.com. I'm also the founder and director of media65 europe s.ar.l., a video-production company in Luxembourg, specialized in corporate videos, institutional films an commercials.
Prior to that I studied Digitale Medien (Media-informatics) and Law and obtained a Master in Computer-Science (Diplom-Informatiker).
Over the years I've gained lots of experience in management, finance but also project management and technical skills.
Specialties: Is it appropriate to say, that I'm versatile? Let's try it:
I love management just as much as grabbing a camera and shooting a movie.
Even though many people are much better in coding than me, I'm able to write some decent lines of code (that's why i'm a Dipl. Inf.) or at least to understand what's going on in a developers brain.
I got used to understand the concepts of funding, investments and company valuation.
And after all sales and communication are a must in my business and I enjoy to be out and deal with (potential) clients.
Besides all that business stuff I love music and was composing myself a lot. But time is limited and so my studio doesn’t see me often these days. It happens more often that I cook and I feel that I've gained some decent skills in pleasing my family or friends with the dishes I prepare for them.
Do you remember the late 90s when fancy repeating GIFs were moving the background of each website? That’s around the time I started developing my first websites with plain HTML and CSS in my free time in high school. Since then I’m eager to learn and discover new technologies to create more interactive and ergonomic web applications and make the life a bit easier and better for everyone.
This drive led me into entrepreneurship, allowing me to acquire a broad expertise from brainstorming the first ideas, creating a prototype, setting up a company, funding, pitching, designing the product, optimizing user experience, developing, deploying to marketing the product on a larger scale.
During my studies, I could enlarge my knowledge in computer science and new media, by developing as well skills in video production, image editing and 3D animation.
When I’m not working, I like passing time with my little family, enjoy some good morning runs, play some tunes on my trumpet or expand my horizon by travelling and meeting new people.
