On October 17th I attend the yearly EBS-Entrepreneurship conference. It was really well organized and quite interesting. The opening keynote was held by Carsten Maschmeyer.
He held a great speech with a focus on marketing and sales. I really liked his quote “if the product is done, then any company is just a marketing and sales machine”. That seems to be totally true. Neglecting constant product development for a second it is quite like this. Many founders seem to underestimate the sales component in their pitches and planes.
Ibrahim Evsan also gave a inspiring speech about digitalism. Further he likes to plan his day the second he wakes up in the morning and in the process he breathes 10 times to get focused. I shall try this, too.
Overall it was a great event which I might attend next year as well.
