That’s how Miriam Meckel, Chief Editor WirtschaftsWoche, opened the 9th NEUMACHER Conference yesterday with all respect to the recently deceased Helmut Schmidt.
On November 17th, we followed the invitation of WirtschaftsWoche and met in Hamburg’s Speicherstadt at Kehrwieder Theater with about 200 other participants to discuss new trends of the digital economy and draw inspiration from successful startups. Panels discussions were exciting and we followed highly motivated pitches. We received many inspiring impulses and appreciated the exchange across industries.
In the slightly peculiar surrounding of the Hamburg Dungeon Inga and Peter gave insight into the :agile Accelerator. During the break out session they debated with the audience what benefits corporate accelerator programs can bring to startups and corporate companies itself.
