Listen to the incredible story of Sibyll Brüggemann from working at Jochen Schweizer and Rocket Internet, to building up Jumia as CMO together with the founding team and accompanying the growth of Breather as VP Growth and Marketing.
This will be a great opportunity to mingle with the 20 students who were chosen by IBC to receive Germany's first digital scholarship „THINK DIGITAL– the scholarship for lateral thinkers and visionaries“. These include students who, at a young age, have already successfully founded startups, researched into artificial intelligence or programmed exciting applications. The aim of the scholarship is to further promote these people and make them fit for the digital job market.
Looking forward to seeing many faces!
