On the 8th of December at 6 pm, Munich’s entrepreneurial ecosystem rallies around CTOs at Google’s office for our event “From techies, for techies: What it’s like to found a startup”. For that, GDSC teams up with START Munich and invites the CTOs of Luminovo and Tanso.

At 6 pm, we will welcome you to the Google office with free food and drinks. After each presentation of approx. 10 min., there will be a short Q&A session. Don’t miss the chance to ask all your questions during the open Q&A at the end, when we will ask all our speakers on stage. We will round up our event with an open networking session!

We are welcoming our speakers:

  • Timon Ruban, Co-Founder & MD (Product & Engineering) at Luminovo
  • Lorenz Hetzel, Co-Founder & CTO at Tanso

Each speaker will discuss topics like:

  • Personal founding story and role in their startups
  • Tech stack & product development
  • Tech talents
  • How to CTO
  • Personal takeaways

After the presentations, you can ask your questions and meet the founders as well as many talented techies and entrepreneurs.

Be ready for an evening full of fantastic insights and potential co-founders, friends, or sparring partners.
