EXCELLABUST H2020 project members...

Two times German startup founder award winning, Martin Reents, arrived to University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing on 20th and 21st September to hold lectures on fundamental decisions in founding startup businesses, and on radical changes in hospitality in hotel business.

Lecture content:
Your first 5 decisions when founding a startup
If you start out on something new you have to take some decisions first. Not all of them are equally important. Some decisions are rather preliminary and can or even have to be changed every once in a while. Startups call that euphemistically a “pivot” and they are proud of their ability to pivot fast whenever needed. Other decisions last for the rest of your live. It’s these choices which are really important and need a solid foundation.

Martin Reents will walk the audience through this process of becoming a founder and entrepreneur. His talk is based on his own experience as a founder of several business startups and his work with social entrepreneurs: “I never started out with the intent just on making money. Rather, I wanted to change the world, make it a better place to live. And the money followed”
