What is TeamCoin (TMC)?

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 13:40:55 +0000

I’m currently advising an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), or more precisely an Initial Token Offering (ITO), called TeamCoin (TMC). (If you’re wondering what the heck that is, this primer might help you understand this whole newfangled thing better.) Why?

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 20:26:53 +0000

2011 My now long defunct startup Gauss – The People Magnet introduces the concept of heatmaps to visualize where your kind of people are at. The world goes… *crickets* 2017 Snapchat introduces heatmaps. To see where your people are at. Internet goes… FUCK YEAH! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ LULZ

The Pitching Masterclass goes LIVE

Tue, 23 May 2017 18:14:46 +0000

To celebrate that I have now coached over 500 startups at over 40 Rheinland Pitches so far since 2013, we decided to stream one of the coaching sessions (well, the theoretical part anyway) live on Facebook. And as we were having a few Spanish startups attending as guests, this time around it was held in […]

Today I was honored to be invited to share from my startup mistakes and coach participants at a Lean Startup Bootcamp for developers in Baghdad, Iraq.

Startup – In hindsight

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 19:32:38 +0000

Someone asked me the other day about what I’d wish I’d known before founding a startup. Which made me think for a bit, because it’s a lot. But if I had to pick just a couple of things, it would be this — and it’s probably not what you wanted to hear. To wit; Getting to somewhere […]
