  • Korbinian Rudloff

    Head of Marketing & Sales at Werkules

    14:20 - 14:40

    Disrupting one of Germany's most conservative industries: Construction

    My passion for technology and especially startups was ignited when I worked in different startups abroad and could see how they improved the everyday life of people. After starting my studies at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, I soon started the first entrepreneurial student initiative at my university. Our goal was to bring many like minded people together to discuss and learn about all relevant aspects that one has to take into consideration when starting their own venture. And we have been quite successful in doing that. During the first two years of our existence many companies were founded and supported by us during the process. 

    Especially interesting for me was any topic around Marketing & Sales and building teams from scratch for real impact. I got the opportunity to learn a lot about that in different companies and startups and put my knowledge to work.

    The most recent venture we have started is Werkules. One night, a few people from completely different backgrounds came together and talked about an industry that was neglected by many startups so far: the German construction industry. 

    That night, the foundation for Werkules was built. 

    We are very happy and proud of the things we have already accomplished as a team but our goal is to revolutionize the entire German construction industry. In order to do that, we look for like minded people to join our mission.

    17:00 - 17:20

    High Risk, High Reward: The deliberate move from Tech Giants to the startup world.

    During my journey so far I have been lucky to grow into becoming an experienced owner with a demonstrated history of leadership, marketing and sales in the tech industry.

    I am skilled in people management, coaching, cross-country and multilingual leadership and account management. My multicultural background allows me not only to speak German, Spanisch, Catalan and Dutch on a native level, but to appreciate and cherish diversity. During my Master of Business Administration (MBA) I focussed on the importance of diversity and cultural values in the success of any organization and process.

    After several years building and leading teams at big tech companies I decided to do a drastic change and quit my quite secure job and entering the startup world. After some months of Covid 19, without knowing what the next months would bring I was offered to become co-owner and CSO/CMO of an influencer search-plattform. The startup needed funding and so the risk was very high. Still I decided to go for it and I don’t regret it one bit.
