The biggest fortunes aren’t made on Wall Street. They’re made way before startups hit the stock market. Consider Mike Walsh, a name just like any of ours who invested $5,000 into Uber. And that investment money? It grew to a staggering $24,827,400!

Such opportunities were once behind closed doors. Reserved for those with connections or vast fortunes. But that’s no more.

StartEngine is tearing down those exclusivity walls and making startup investments accessible to you and me…

With Howard Marks, co-founder of the gaming giant Activision at the helm, StartEngine and its 1.7 million users have fueled startups with over $1.1 billion. This is no longer just an investment platform, but an investing revolution.

And it gets better. They’re inviting you to be a part of their journey. With just $500, you can join their live fundraising round and own shares of this revolutionary company.

Visit and jump on board before their investment round wraps up.

die westwing experience – mit cmo rik strubel


Ein gemĂĽtliches Sofa, vielleicht ein passender Teppich und neue Kerzen – wer auf der Suche nach Möbeln und neuen StĂĽcken fĂĽr die eigenen vier Wände ist, kommt mittlerweile um Westwing kaum mehr herum. 2011 mit einem exklusivem Clubkonzept gestartet, bietet das Unternehmen eine kuratierte Auswahl und Kollektionen rund um Home und Living-Artikel – und das mittlerweile in elf Ländern europaweit. FĂĽr CMO Rik Strubel ist Westwing nicht nur ein erlebbares Shopping-Magazin, sondern vor allem ein “One-Stop-Shop fĂĽr Inspiration und Inneneinrichtung”.

In Folge #196 eures Digitalisierungspodcasts von Vodafone Business spricht Host Christoph mit Rik darĂĽber, wie wichtig Emotionalisierung im Marketing ist und wie sich Westwing eigentlich durch die Eröffnung des ersten physischen Stores verändert hat. Und was bedeutet das fĂĽr den Onlinehandel? Rik verrät auĂźerdem, warum er gerne Geschichten erzählt, was sein Credo ist und was – und wie – er von seinen Kolleg*innen lernt. SchlieĂźen sich Transparenz und Inspiration aus?
