As much as we are on the hunt for the next big thing, the newest trends, the rising stars and the smartest thinkers, we also cherish our traditions. One of our favorites is the “Speakers’ Dinner”: always hosted the evening before a conference. It is a wonderful chance to meet up with old friends, meet new ones and get into the mood for the following days of many inspirational new ideas, viewpoints and topics. So of course the chance wasn’t missed to meet up before the premiere in Berlin: DLD and Lakestar invited to the Restaurant Golvet, with a panoramic view in the heart of Berlin, at the Potsdamer Platz. The guests where welcomed by Ninja Struye de Swielande, Head of Marketing and Communication at Lakestar, Mark Schmitz, General Partner at Lakestar und Steffi Czerny, DLD Founder & Managing Director. Lakestar makes early and growth stage investments in disruptive, technology-enabled businesses, driven by outstanding entrepreneurs. They have historically invested in Facebook, Spotify, Skype, AirBnB, Klarna, and King.com, and more recently Lakestar investments include Algomi, GoEuro, AngelList, Makers Studio, Taulia and Harry’s. Mark Schmitz emphasised the importance to support innovation and entrepreneurship in his speech. The guests gathered around the big wooden tables and over a wonderful dinner and good drinks as the first DLD in Berlin kicked off.
