Pre-Work Talk Berlin Making constraints an asset that drives innovation in your startup

Join us for our Berlin Pre-Work Talk on Tuesday July 9 where FATMAP's Head of Product William Gill will answer the #IXDSCriticalQuestion: How can time and budget constraints drive innovation in a mapping startup?

Economists and politicians call for fresh ideas, innovative business models and new companies, which is just what you find in cities like Berlin and Munich.

Still, startups face some of the most extreme time and budget constraints of any company, constantly struggling to accelerate and scale while still making ends meet.

How can entrepreneurs tackle these constraints? Or can these constraints even be transformed into drivers of innovations that ultimately let the company fly? The answer is yes, they can!

In his talk, Will will explain how FATMAP successfully leverages startup constraints to drive innovation in technology and business models. Founded in 2013, FATMAP faced their fare share of obstacles and constraints but managed to get through stronger and more innovative than before. Today, they are one of the leading outdoor adventure companies, bringing together cutting-edge technology and local experts.

Wondering how they did it? Come by at 8:30am for your dose of caffeine. Will will begin at 9am!

We look forward to seeing you at our studio at Paul-Lincke-Ufer 39/30.
