Want to hear tips, down to the point on how to build a successful global company and be seen as a rising star in the eyes of the investors? Our mission is to empower founders and we’ll do exactly that at Podim DX Founders Talk.
We invited several founders who simply cracked the code and managed to build global 9-figure businesses, grew their teams from one to hundreds of employees, raised millions of venture capital, and got millions of users. They will share with you the biggest lessons they’ve learned on the way and stories behind the scenes.
But not just that. We’ll also be hosting some of the experienced investors and people who have been running some of the most eminent global startup accelerators to give you a lot of practical advice on how to get funded.
You will meet Florian Gschwandtner, a co-founder and chief growth officer at Tractive, who has raised a total of $2.7M.
