About

On the Bits & Pretzels Corporate Innovation Stage the serial tech-entrepreneurs Niels Dörje & Freya Oehle will host very intense and highly interactive fishbowl discussions focused on everything that surrounds corporate spin-offs and spin-outs of big corporates and the world-market leading Mittelstand.

An open and utterly honest deep dive into entrepreneurial efforts of corporate organizations shall shed light on transformation processes from intrapreneur ideation to spin-offs, organizational structures and setups, startup collaborations and – not to forget – do’s and don’ts, successes and failures of corporate entrepreneurial ventures.

First-hand insights will be provided by representatives of McKinsey, SAP, PwC, Mach49, MunichRe AG, Otto Group, EnBW AG, Hartmann Group, UVC Partners, and the Hamburg Port Authority as well as by real-world corporate founders. Honoring the fishbowl format, you’re most welcome to join the discussion on stage and take part in the open dialogue!
