#3: What’s the best event you have ever attended?
Oh wow, haha that’s a hard question. I don’t think I can choose one specific. I’ve been to so many different types of events – from the experimental artsy kind of events to big corporate settings. But instead, I can elaborate a bit on the ‘WHY’ some events have had a lasting impact on me.
For me, it’s all about feeling inspired and about the people you meet. The best moments are those that just happen organically, and I believe that a good event makes that happen. It opens up a space where people can connect, hopefully, gain new perspectives and insights, and maybe even feel inspired to act on it.
One of the best events I attended was an art fair years ago, where we had dinner on the final night. Everyone was invited to join one big final dinner, from international VIP guests to the local volunteers, and we were sitting all together by these long tables out in the open under a bridge, and people were just happy and having good conversations. There was no seating, no formal networking-agenda, no band or DJ playing, – there wasn’t anything fancy about it, just the shared experience and good food.
#4: What makes you happy?
Uf, many things. Mostly just simple things. Cute dogs (and videos of cute dogs), beautiful landscapes, hiking and being active in the nature, all things that make me laugh (I guess that’s almost everything), meeting new people, eating good food with friends and family, fresh flowers everywhere in my apartment, winter, art and architecture, travelling, staying all day in bed on Sundays, dumplings, Christmas holidays, spring cleaning (no, not kidding – I love getting rid of things), yoga, reading books, getting things done, collecting notebooks (I never actually write anything in them, which is a bit odd) and many more.
I look forward to getting to know all the start-ups and to figure out how I can use my set of skills to help make this community the best one ever. I am curious to learn how we can make this community a place where start-ups and people not only thrive but also grow and learn from one another. I think that in the end, it’s not so much about what you gain from the community as the direction it can take you and your business. The question is how I can help and be instrumental in this process, and that is the most challenging and exciting part of my new role. The how-part I haven’t figured out yet 😉
