Get all the secrets on how to build a winning team for your company!

One of the greatest entrepreneurial minds of our time Steve Jobs once said that great things in business are never done by one person, but by a team of people.
At PODIM we are very much aware of that, so we have dedicated an important part of this year's PODIM Conference programme to helping you build a winning team for your company!
 
To find out why "Diversity matters!" in building a successful team, join us at the panel on the first day of PODIM, where we will discuss building winning teams with people who have done this and have been part of winning teams themselves!
 
The first speaker helping us reveal the secrets of successful teams is Sara Usinger, an entrepreneur-in-residence at SwissEP, supporting startup ecosystem players around the Balkans. She recently returned from Iran where she spent the last three years setting up and running Avatech, one of Iran's first professional startup accelerators. Apart from helping build accelerators and co-working spaces, Sara has also helped startups transform into great companies.
 
The second panelist is Carolyn N. Spencer, an innovation infuser and program manager at Amazon, who will share her experience gained at one of the largest and most profitable global corporations.
 
Want to know what kind of a team it takes for a company to become a unicorn? Žiga Vavpotič, the chairman of the unicorn company Outfit7 Limited, will share the lessons from the one of the fastest growing multinational family entertainment companies on the planet.
 
Maris Prii, a startup expert and entrepreneur-in-residence at Swiss EP, is a former COO and member of the management board of the Startup Wise Guys team and has been involved in six acceleration programs in Estonia and Latvia. She will reveal first-hand insight on how to build a successful and diverse team from early stages of the company onwards.
 
The host of the panel will be Nina Nikolikj, the leader and initiator of Womenpreneurs Stories, which is an initiative that aims to celebrate inspirational women in business, share their stories and inspire. Nina is also the ecosystem facilitator for SwissEP and the manager of the entrepreneurs-in-residence initiative in Macedonia.
 
We want to fully equip you to build an amazing team for your company, so we will do much more than just talk about building great teams! Learn how to build a high-performing growth team at a workshop led by our growth-hacking rock star guest, the founder and lead growth hacker at RockBoost, Chris Out!
 
Join us at the PODIM Conference in Maribor on 15 and 16 May and make your first steps towards building a superstar team for your winning company!
