Online KISDtalk: “Founder Talk: Try, Fail, Fall, Get Up, Get Going

Dr. Nils Eiteneyer, Co-founder xdeck

In this Online KISDtalk, guest speaker Dr. Nils Eiteneyer will discuss foremost three aspects of the experiences he made in business and founding a start-up. Firstly: start-up turnaround: Trying, failing and taking tough decisions. Staying truthful and consistent with facts. Secondly, downsizing with a purpose: Making the most of it to pull through and protect everyone involved. And last but not least: Role transformation: from strategy consultant to (wannabe) entrepreneur – and some more lessons learned the hard way.

Nils Eiteneyer is co-founder and Managing Director of xdeck, Germany’s first start-up accelerator operated by founders. Beforehand, he was Managing Director of retail start-up FamilienBande, like xdeck funded by the founders of FOND OF. Nils used to advise large corporates at McKinsey & Company after graduating from Mannheim University and the London School of Economics. He holds a PhD from RWTH Aachen University.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the talk will be held via Zoom. You will find the Zoomlink and the access data below.
