The Heureka Conference on Tuesday saw 500 guests from the startup and tech industry gather to listen to keynote speeches and get involved in expert-run workshops. We asked the big-name attendees what the best business tips they’ve ever received are and heard from VCs Gabriel Matuschka and Nenad Marovac, along with M&A advisor Lydia Benkö, founders Jan Beckers, Miki Devic and Leopold von Bismarck, plus head of the Berlin Startup Academy Christoph Räthke.

Our pick of the tips? “Make sure you have good structures set up before you scale hard.” Or, as Räthke eloquently put it: “Don’t do anything stupid.”
