Need that push to get your startup off the ground and transform your idea into a reality? Lacking the skills and network to make your business a success story?

In just two weeks the Heureka Conference will be taking place in Berlin, Vertical Media’s very own event providing you with an opportunity to build up your contacts while gaining all the knowledge you need to get financing, market your startup, hire a great team and build a successful business model.

On 14 May, Heureka will take over the historic Alte Münze in the Nicolai Viertal in Berlin. Experts from the areas of VC, developing, marketing, HR and company building will hold keynotes, speak on panels and host hands-on workshops.

“Knowledge and experience are the two most important factors you need to have in order to be successful in a business setting. That’s why we focused Heureka more on the needs of startups this year. In the workshops in particular, young startups can learn from the most experienced brains in the business and in the end not only take away knowledge, but also important contacts”, Sebastian Esser, Director of Events told us.

Slotting in with the Berlin Web Week festivities, Heureka conference-goers can get into the networking spirit early by  checking out the Breakfast Club on 8 May and mingling over coffee and nibbles.
