About this event

Thinking of expanding globally, finally getting out of survival mode?

The current pandemic wreaked havoc on plans to go international for many startups. Yet, a startup’s greatest skill is, first and foremost, to adapt and evolve. As the crisis seems to stretch on, is it worth going worldwide in a pandemic and what are the parameters to take into account?

Sebastian Grote - Head of Strategy at X-Zell

But he doesn’t like to think of himself in these categories. Sebastian is a journalist. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience in news and brand publishing, his mission is to bring a ‘journalism mindset’ to strategy and marketing. Shared values. Strong research. Clear messaging. No room for ego.
