Finally, German first-league basketball team ALBA BERLIN and the equity-based crowdfunding platform Companisto invite the start-up scene to attend the second Start-up Crunch Time in the o2 World Berlin!

On 11 April, 30 company founders will have the unique opportunity to meet one of the most important German entrepreneurs: Dr. Eric Schweitzer, CEO of ALBA Group, President of the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK) and of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) Berlin.


From Start-up...

Only six employees and two trucks once served as the foundation of one of today’s leading global waste disposal companies, the ALBA Group. Forty-six years later, the company is operated in the second generation by Dr. Eric Schweitzer (see photo on the right) and his brother, Dr. Axel Schweitzer. The challenges of founding one’s own company, however, have not changed dramatically until today.


 

...to Global Player

In 1998, Dr. Eric Schweitzer and Dr. Axel Schweitzer became the new CEOs of ALBA Group at the age of 33 and 29 years respectively and systematically expanded the business. They have been very successful: Today, approximately 9,000 people work for ALBA Group, which generates annual revenues of EUR 2.9bn (2012) and is one of the leading global recycling and environmental services companies and suppliers of raw materials.

On 11 April 2014, starting at 5 p.m., 30 select founders from the start-up scene will receive the exclusive opportunity to talk directly to Dr. Eric Schweitzer in the VIP lounge of the o2 World Berlin in order to profit from the knowledge of this outstanding entrepreneur.

Afterwards, there will be a photo session with Dr. Schweitzer on the court, which will be followed by networking with interesting company founders as well as excellent food and wine. Simultaneously, guests will be able to watch the basketball match between ALBA BERLIN and Telekom Baskets Bonn from the VIP lounge.

 

Overview of the Highlights of the Second Start-up Crunch Time

  • Talk with Dr. Schweitzer, CEO of ALBA Group, about the challenges of entrepreneurship in the VIP areas of the o2 World
