EY-Lunch-Masterclass: How to Invest in Startups


The art of achieving a successful symbiosis between investor and startup and avoiding unfavourable developments

To develop a promising idea into a business model, to find the right sparring partner and, if necessary, to accept the sharing of entrepreneurial responsibility with a strategic partner: These aspects often put high requirements on a startup entrepreneur.

From the investor’s point of view, the strategic participation requirements must be met by at least a stable expectation framework for the profitability of an investment and the participation in its business success. The investment can be viewed from a portfolio perspective or from the perspective of a clear strategic business investment.

The challenges on both sides are similar, but the perspectives and needs are different. To connect and harmonize these, to succeed in a common organizational form and to achieve a successful symbiosis – this is what we discuss with you and our experts in our interactive lunch masterclass and provide valuable insights into the dos and don’ts of daily practice.

Reality Bites: Facing the Challenges of the Real Startup Life.


Founders do know the truth: there is no such things as „success stories“. Just real stories. Running a startup is not a long quiet river. It is a series of challenges. And the do´s and don’ts are of little help in managing the ups and downs.
There is no recipes, no shortcuts but there is a method to master the real startup life: F.A.C.E The Challenge. Developed by the world heavyweight champion record holder, Wladimir KLITSCHKO, this method allows founders, employees and entrepreneurs to identify and master their specific challenges with a willpower of a champion, thanks to four essential skills: Focus, Agility, Coordination and Endurance.
During this interactive workshop, Wladimir Klitschko, Tatjana Kiel (CEO of KLITSCHKO Ventures), Mathias Ulmann (Head of F.A.C.E. Consulting KLITSCHKO Ventures) and the startup expert Sanja Stankovic (Founder of the network “Hamburg Startups”) will present the frameworks, tools and exercises to face the challenges of the real startup life.
