Innovation simply does not happen out of nowhere. It is the product of investigation, invention. imitation, and of course lots of iterations. In this workshop we will describe the innovation as a continuous process with key steps that with hard work (and a bit of luck) leads to success.
I’m a biomedical engineer and final year student of the Biomedical science master’s degree. I’ve worked as an assistant professor at Los Andes University in Colombia leading classes focused on design thinking and human center design. I have experience in need screening and identification, prototyping and problem solving in low budget environments.

Well done! You have this great idea in your mind and you know how to solve this specific problem that everyone is worrying about? Great one! But what now?
In this masterclass, you'll learn how to assess your personal skills and whether you should build on some of them.
We'll look at Pattern interruption (standing out from the other ideas), Pitch structure (what should be included), Simplifying (getting to the point and allocating time properly) and Storytelling ( being exciting and inspiring).
We will also address the mysteries of funding and finding backers. In Germany, sometimes different principles apply and the common standard rules of the start-up world are not transferable 1:1. Finding your way through the labyrinth of funding programs can be daunting at first — this masterclass will give you the orientation you need.

A lot of data processing time falls into the steaming paradigm, where you receive a continuous flux of data to process. The output can then be either stored or directly sent to another output stream. A simple example is a continuous flux of IoT sensors data. One can process this stream by using a machine learning model and outputting anomalies as a stream of alerts.
Apache Beam is a unified programming model to define batch and streaming data processing jobs. It's compatible with multiple executor engines such as Apache Spark, FApache link or Google DataFlow. It follows the philosophy "Write once, run everywhere" and has SDK in multiple languages such as Python, Java and Go.
In this workshop we will learn to use Apache Beam on Google cloud to process a stream of incoming Tweets, process them using a simple ML model and write the predictions to an output stream that can be consumed by subscribers of interest.

Having been on the investing and founder side, Alan is passionate about building the best team possible. He will draw on his experience at Westwing and previous companies to talk about one of the archetypical founding team combinations where a technical and a non-technical founder start a company together. How do you find and assess a co-founder with a very different background? What makes such a team successful? How do co-founders with vastly different areas of expertise collaborate effectively to build a great business?
Join this Masterclass for further insight on building a complementary team to set the foundation for a successful company.

The recent dispute between Elastic and AWS sparked a debate on whether cloud hyperscalers are unfairly taking advantage of open source projects, sometimes competing at scale against the main contributor of a technology.
Florian Georg (Microsoft) will give a quick overview of the key points of the debate and what this means for building a successful open source product strategy and business model on a cloud platform such as Azure.

Building a successful startup relies on three things: 1) Finding an underserved market need 2) Building a great product 3) Creating a profitable business. Unfortunately, many founders only focus on building the product without checking whether customers need or want to pay for it. As a result, 95% of startups fail and the main reason is lack of market need.
This workshop explores the process of building a great product customers need and pay for. It introduces participants to different methodologies they can use to validate a market need, build a product incrementally and find a business model. Additionally, participants will get an overview of the different topics they need to think about when building a startup. Finally, participants will get an introduction to the Creidea platform and a demo of how they can use it during and after the Hack.
