The first Spätschicht of 2013 kicked off last Thursday with the movers and shakers of Germany’s internet scene gathering at the chic Hausungarn for a night of networking and business match-making.


Over 300 guests – including investors, founders, PR professionals and journalists – came together to meet, mingle and exchange ideas. Lines formed outside the Speed Networking room, where event attendees rotated in two-minute intervals to get to know each other and get down to business before the gong sounded.

The whole evening was buzzing with activity as golden coins were exchanged for beer, wine or bubbly and business relationships were sealed with a magazine-style photo shoot.

Scattered amongst the career-minded crowd were: Richmond Views Ventures‘ Frederik Fleck, Wellington Partners’ Christian Thaler-Wolski, Smeet CEO Sebastian Funk, and Team Europe’s Kolja Hebenstreit and Mark Fuhrmann, plus representatives from SumUp, Rocket Internet and the CDU.

A big thanks to everyone who came and to all our wonderful sponsors for making the night a huge success. We’re already looking forward to the next one!
