Learn foreign languages for free with alugha!

For a few weeks, we have a new area of focus at alugha: learning foreign languages! This works great with our multilingual online videos and is also completely free of charge at that. The impetus to delve into the subject gave us the throughout positive feedback at Expolingua in Berlin, on which we exhibited last month.

RISEConf Hong Kong 2015

It should be our fourth and last start-up exhibition of this kind and that’s why Hong Kong, Asia’s linchpin, with its RISEConf (from the series of Summits/Collision) was a perfect fit for this undertaking. Our journey there was a bit tedious and Hong Kong is truly no cakewalk for Europeans from our region. It is very hot and humid with constant ozone warnings requesting that one should proceed to a building. But we are on a mission: to popularize alugha worldwide! Therefore, such concomitants do not have an effect on us.

Las Vegas Collision Conf 2015 – Roundup

It were really two crazy, smashing, exciting but also exhausting days for us in Las Vegas. After our arrival (our previous news with video) we started the crunch time. It wasn’t an easy decision whether to take on all those exertions and if spending the time and effort will be worth while. But as always in life, at the right place to the right time and all doubts are gone.

Collision Conf ’15 Las Vegas – the arrival

After the WebSummit in Dublin / Ireland, the WolvesSummit in Gdynia / Poland this is now the next StartUp exhibition of this series we are participating. It takes place in smashing Las Vegas in the Nevada desert and therefore it was a long journey for us. It took nearly 24 hours door to hotel door, accordingly we were really whacked. Despite being awake for 24 hrs, sleeping worked brilliantly and eyes were shut by 10pm (Las Vegas time – 7am Monday morning in Germany).

alugha Goes East: WOLVES SUMMIT in Poland, nothing for lonesome wolves

New York, Paris, Tokyo – not only there, even in other exciting places the start-up scene is gathering year by year. After Vienna, Dublin and New York the alugha team, especially our travel loving CEO Bernd Korz in attendance of our charming polish speaking Kasia Paruszewska, went on their way to Gdynia into the Gdansk Bay in Poland. There is for the first time the promising Wolves Summit taking place with participants from all over the wold. Of course, we had to be there. It’s needless to say that we’re very proud of being one of 60 companies that have been selected out of 1.000 applications to take part at The Great Pitch.

The CeBIT in Istanbul was over and we landed in Germany when we directly got two amazing e-mails! We now wanna tell you about one of them! About 6 weeks ago we became aware that we can apply for the genius Pioneers Festival in Vienna. They have about 1000 applicants but only 50 of them reach the Top50 Challenge 2014 – and alugha is among them!
