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).

Amsterdam beyond cheese and tulips – 2 days the melting pot of the startup scene

No chance to recover from the WOLVES SUMMIT in Poland, the alugha team was again travelling last week. This time The Next Web Conference (TNW) in Amsterdam on the 23rd & 24th of April was our destination. Our CEO Bernd Korz and our CTO Ithamar Adema, based in Amsterdam, were there. The 10th TNW is one of the most important international technology conferences where the world’s masterminds of the technology industrie and start ups are meeting up. With more than 3.500 participants it’s one of the biggest events of its type in Europe. Since we didn’t attend any pitches this time but exhibiting on our booth, the both probably thought they had two relaxing days in front of them – but they were mistaken.

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.

They have about 1000 applicants but only 50 of them reach the Top50 Challenge 2014 – and alugha is among them!

CeBIT Istanbul 2014 – Our final video about a great experience

We had an incredible week on the CeBIT 2014 in Instanbul. Our booth only had 9 sqm and the fair itself was rather small with only 3 halls but that did not matter to us, we achieved more than we had hoped for. We had great talks and got brilliant feedback and now working highly motivated on the follow up.
