About

Mind Your Business is a salon-style conversation series with expert speakers deep-diving into challenging business areas that drive the startup and SME ecosystems forward. 


We realized that there is a strong sense of business opportunity that everyone connects with in this region, but how do we cement that and tackle challenges in a pragmatic way? How can we more critically explore crucial topics? How do we reconcile opposing interests? Our conversation series provides a platform that encourages experience sharing through meaningful open dialogue where these tough issues are addressed to start the chain reaction of change.

What We Believe

• Finance and legal matters do not have to be boring.

• Culture is more than a mission statement on a wall.

• Openness leads to change.

• In killing the elephant in the room.

• In learning from one another.

• In being curious and not accepting no for an answer.

• In challenging the status quo.

• In exploring off-road topics that Google cannot answer.
