Event Details

How to reinvent yourself when leaving the Start-Up phase

Scaling up is like jumping directly from childhood to parenthood, skipping many important phases of your life.

The play is over. It’s serious business, with serious responsibilities.

Marc will lead you through a number of areas affected by this scaling effort, both technical and organizational, using his experience as a CTO at various startups and scaleups, both in b2b and b2c, and tell you about his learnings.


  • Making sense of the outsourcing vs insourcing issue – it’s the IP, baby!
  • App scaling without limits – how to truly leverage the power of the Cloud
  • From MVP to complexity – how to add scale to develop and create a sustainable code base
  • Towards efficient knowledge buildup and -sharing
  • People define success – the changing roles in a growing Start-Up (including that of the Founder/CEO)
  • Makeshift vs Strategy in HR and other supporting areas
