Celebrating the 1st Anniversary with our community
The heat was on. For the occasion and the temperature. Despite the hot weather we were about 50 people, previous speakers, regulars and new comers, gathered at Launchlabs. We had the honor of having the CEO and owner of Launchlabs among us this time and could personally say how grateful we are for being hosted in such a wonderful location..
Cool that you all came, thank you very much for making it to be with us, especially on that day.
Chapeau to our speakers, thank you for sharing your stories:
Andreas is an innovation consultant and coach specializing in work environments. He enjoys working on agile, space-related projects and so decided four years ago to found launchlabs in Basel to pursue his passion for creating spaces for innovation. His lesson:
Do not trust the four Fs !
He shared with us some of the situations where you are not sure what you were not able to foresee this. The feeling I got was that it is still worth the challenges and pains you have to overcome as an entrepreneur. He calls his “launchlabs – the place where shit happens. Oh, yes, and innovation”.
Sabine Van T Hart
Born in the Netherlands, growing up in Australia, finding the love of her life in Italy, now living in Switzerland, She shared her ‘Cookie monster’ story the first time in public. Her friends are still amazed how she made it from her marketing career to start her health coaching business ‘Puricious’.
Do not take your health for granted !
Sabine was our speaker during the SUGAR AWARENESS WEEK, a campaign she and her husband Marco were running to share facts about the effect on sugar in our bodies. This is an extremely hot topic these days and FUN.Basel was happy to be support it with our community.
Sustainability is important to him and a word he uses often – he is really passionate about investments that make an impact for our societies. He co-founded and worked at Mission Markets in New York, a pioneering fintech startup focused on capital raising for impact companies and funds.
Be aware that you are jumping without a parachute.
He said he fucked up so many times that it will be difficult to decide which story to share. It is also quite hard to give you a glimpse into the story he shared. What happens in Launchlabs, … is definitely worth joining.
A question from our Q&A sessions, we are interested to share with you:
Do you only learn from mistake you did yourself or can you also learn from mistakes others made?
Let us know in an email or the comments below.
We are looking forward to see you on September 6, 2017
Jutta Jerlich & Isabelle Valibus
