Hi there! I’m Wolfgang Kerler, a co-founder of 1E9 and our editor-in-chief. I’m a journalist by heart, and I love to discuss technology with an optimistic approach (which doesn’t mean, I am naive, of course :nerd_face:). On July 11th, you’ll see me on our keynote stage where I’ll be opening up and closing the day, and I’ll also be the moderator of some panels on the keynote stage.

If you want to know more about 1E9, our online magazine or if you got a story that we should definetely cover, get in touch :slight_smile: Great that you’re all joining us!

Hi, my name is Krischan and I’m another co-founder of 1E9 and head of platform & community. I fell in love with a Commodore 64 in 1983 and have been a part time nerd since then. Before 1E9 I worked at Condé Nast Germany for quite some time – being reponsible for the digital stuff of brands like WIRED, VOGUE, GLAMOUR and GQ. I’m from Lower Franconia, so not really a chatterbox, if you come up and talk to me. But please do so, it’s always great to meet new people! And please enjoy your stay at our first 1E9_THE_CONFERENCE! :man_astronaut: :woman_astronaut: :rocket:

Hi everybody, let me briefly introduce myself.

Let’s share our visions about the future and engage in a discussion how to make it happen! Feel free to text me or speak to me at the event. Look for a tall blonde guy, I am not to be overlooked.

See you at 1E9!

Hallo! Um herauszufinden, was ich kann, schreibe @1E9_Bot Hilfe.

Hi everyone,

I am Tina, a software entrepreneur from Munich with a passion for good tech and online communities - former founder of GymZap, the first Internet sports club in Germany, and current CEO of Mentessa - a collaboration platform for the future of work.

I believe in the power of technology to transform society. Recently I wrote the book “Big Heart Ventures” to inspire more builders for purpose-driven action and ethics in entrepreneurship. As every computer science nerd I have never been sure about being an introvert or an extrovert. This is why I love writing :sweat_smile:

Happy to meet you and talk about the future of everything - a future when we can build anything!

Professionally, I am program manager for Intel’s deep learning activities for design automation of all kinds of chipsets. In this regards, I lead a mostly scientific team pushing the frontiers of scalable application of deep learning. I closely collaborate with TUM and a couple of US universities. I am always on the lookout for talents!

Privately, I enjoy philosophical, technical, political, and basically all kinds of debates which don’t focus on sports. I am an amateur singer/songwriter as well. And a passionate tennis player. So reach out if you find overlaps :slight_smile:

I am really happy to get in touch to entrepreneurs in Germany - as of today I only know these meet-ups from San Francisco area…

See you at 1E9,

Good morning everyone! My name is Amelie and I don’t actually have what you would call a traditional technical or scientific background – I am a translator and interpreter who specialises in these fields though and as such I am very passionate about learning about current trends, developments, etc.

When I am not busy juggling words I enjoy doing archery and fencing, hiking and reading. I spent the last six years in the UK but am glad to be back in beautiful Bavaria now.

And I am of course looking forward to getting to know lots of other entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts tomorrow!
