Jedes erfolgreiche Start-Up beschäftigt Mitarbeiter – und je ausgefeilter das Geschäftsmodell ist, desto höher sind die Anforderungen an das Personal, und damit auch die Anforderungen an eine arbeitsrechtliche Gestaltung, die den Interessen des Start-Ups gerecht wird und zugleich die rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen einhält. Gerade das Arbeitsrecht ist schnelllebig: Viele Themen wie Mindestlohn, Beteiligungsprogramme und Know-How-Schutz sind erst im Laufe der letzten Jahre besonders wichtig geworden oder erscheinen durch neue Gesetze in einem anderen Licht. Ziel des Seminars ist es, den Teilnehmern einen aktuellen und umfassenden Überblick über die wichtigsten Arbeitsrechts-Themen für Start-Ups zu verschaffen.

City Barometer – Automated opinion research for cities and towns
City officials lack continuous feedback tool for their decision-making. That’s why we have built City Barometer! We quickly build a representative panel and give the officials an online store with 20 most common research types (city’s strategy; investment support check; funds prioritization; citizen satisfaction and issues in areas like healthcare, bureaucracy etc.; traffic optimization). Citizens get an entertaining and gamified one-stop-shop app to participate in their hometown’s dealings. Hot topic discussions, participatory budgeting and suggestion-posting modules keep citizens engaged. The state-of-the-art methodology, automation and data visualisation provides officials with quick answers to set up investment priorities, get satisfaction stats and keep citizens in the loop.

We use technology to automate manual and repetitive administrative back-office work. We believe that “dull” tasks can be done better by machines and humans are better suited for communication and more complex tasks that require reasoning and judgement. We combine text-mining solutions, natural language processing (NLP), machine learning and software robots (Robotic Process Automation) to transform organizations to digital era.

Get together / DJ François Svalis
François Svalis is an Olomouc-based electronica and techno producer who has been releasing music since 2015. He has received great critical acclaim for his emotional electronica made for both the dancefloor and sit-down concerts on various blogs and radios worldwide. He focuses his energy on supporting and nurturing the music scene even further, so he founded along with David John Carter a label called Circle of Us in Rostock, which is more than just a label, it is more of a family of artists. After a very sharp start in the beginning of this year when he embarked on many live concerts, he has stepped back for the sole purpose of making his debut LP which should be released by the end of this year.

Factory Berlin and Google for Entrepreneurs partnered up to bring you a series of workshops and lectures aimed to help your startup scale.

This workshop will take you through a journey of an App developer who successfully built up a business, not just an App. It will provide context on the App ecosystem and will aim at triggering some forward looking thoughts about the future of the App industry.

Our speaker, Marie Loridan, leads Mobile App Promotion Acceleration in the DACH region focusing on installs and user engagement. She has been for 10 years at Google and previously worked on mobile App monetization.

Arbeiten 4.0 ist in aller Munde. Homeoffice, New Work, Co- oder gar Crowdworking will jeder ausprobieren. Kreativität durch Büroarchitektur, Lösungsfindung per Design Thinking: Standard in vielen erfolgreichen Unternehmen und guter Ton in der (Berliner) Startup-Szene. Die Bundesregierung hat 2016 einen aufwändigen Grünbuchprozess zum Thema durchgeführt, die Veränderungen der Arbeitswelt analysiert und politische Handlungsfelder identifiziert.

Leider wurde eine seit Jahrzehnten überfällige Reform, wir meinen: De-Regulierung des deutschen Arbeitsrechts nicht als dringendes politisches Vorhaben identifiziert. Doch gerade hier herrscht Handlungsbedarf: Wir wollen mit Ihnen und unseren Experten herausfinden, wo in Startups, kleinen und mittleren Unternehmen der arbeitsrechtliche Schuh drückt und wo Potentiale für mehr Innovation und bessere Arbeit durch weniger Regulierung genutzt werden können.
