19.10.2017

Meet Christian Wiens of GetSafe at Café L3 and gather insights from the founder of the insurance startup based in Heidelberg. He will talk about the process of starting up his venture and how to manage change.

ELASPIX

Tobias Günther is a geek, a professor of computer science at DHBW Mannheim, and founder of Elaspix, a fairly successful online 3D-configurator. At the same time Tobias is quite good at table tennis, has printed the Mannheim water tower in 3D, and can drive a tank. We met up to talk about Star Wars, Mannheim, evolution and artificial intelligence.

DE.BUS

They love a good story in the business world, and with their regional blog ku.bus, which they started in 2016, they might be taking on Handelsblatt some fine day. At the moment the guys in charge, Oliver Brümmer and Wolf Müller-Christmann, are in the process of expanding their business model. So it’s about time we met Oliver and Wolf for an interview.

„THERE IS MONEY HERE!“

His first startup didn’t work out, but his second attempt kicked off a successful career as a business angel. With his Good Brands AG Mannheim resident Matthias Storch invests in good ideas and brands — but he just can’t stop starting up himself. We met the man in the concept store of his lifestyle brand BUTIQ in Quartier Q 6 Q 7, to sit down for an interview, and talked about the thin line between success and failure, pesky elevator pitches, and how Mannheim is ahead of other start-up cities such as Berlin.
