The world as we knew it
So how should startups react? Challenges are the fuel — it’s in the DNA of startups to solve problems, be agile and grow fast! Many startups have already shown that they have in fact grown their KPI-s in the middle of the crisis. This might seem crazy to many startups who are struggling, it might seem that their business is not relevant to the crisis. But it always is! 👌
It’s about the people, and a crisis is an opportunity to serve them in a more meaningful way than ever.
That’s why we’ve invited two startup founders, from 99math (Estonia) and MemSQL HQ (USA/Portugal/Ukraine), to share with us their mindset around the current situation, what adjustments they have made since the start of the pandemic, how have these changes served their startup so far, and how do they plan to go on.
🔸Nikita Shamgunov — co-founder and CEO of MemSQL. Previously, he served as CTO for the company. Prior to co-founding the company, Nikita worked at Facebook and at Microsoft SQL Server.
MemSQL is a modern relational database for cloud and on-premises that delivers immediate insights for modern applications and analytical systems.
🔸Tõnis Kusmin — founder and CEO of 99math, former founder and CEO of Tebo.
99math is a multiplayer game to practice math facts in a fun way. The startups recently raised €454K to help accelerate their growth.
Our moderator will be Ragnar Sass, founder and CEO of LIFT99co, co-founder at Pipedrive, the initiator of Salto Growth Camp: EMERGEncy (an online accelerator happening in early April, for 15 chosen startups to rise in the fight against COVID-19)
