This Was the 2nd Start-up Crunch Time!




On Friday, 11 April 2014, we hosted the second Start-up Crunch Time together with German first-league basketball team ALBA Berlin. An exclusive circle of 30 select company founders and journalists of BILD, Gründerszene, and VentureVillage met the CEO of ALBA Group, President of the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry, and President of the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Dr. Eric Schweitzer.

In the VIP area of the o2 World, Dr. Schweitzer, who systematically turned ALBA Group into a global multi-billion company together with his brother, shared his experiences with the start-ups. The founders were particularly interested in his way of dealing with challenges and his motivation for doing volunteer work.


A Different Kind of Networking Event


After a stimulating discussion in the Blue Room, the event continued with relaxed networking in the VIP restaurant of the o2 World. Whether they were having dinner or watching the game in the reserved start-up section of the hall, the founders truly enjoyed the evening.



Of course, basketball played a major role during the event as well. Before a full house, ALBA Berlin played against their long-term rival from Bonn; both teams had already met four times during the current season.



At the end, ALBA Berlin celebrated a clear 93-67 victory over Telekom Baskets Bonn.



We would like to thank all founders for coming – thanks to you, we had another fantastic evening! Moreover, we would like to thank ALBA Berlin for organizing this excellent event and being great hosts again.

By the way, we have published some additional pictures of the 2nd Start-up Crunch Time on Facebook.

See you at the next Crunch Time,
