Berlin

Dinner

November 9, 2023

Summary

Targeting sustainable revenue development

Across Startups, Grownups and Corporations there is an ambition after the chaos of recent years to return to a model of profitable, sustainable growth. In a new VC landscape where profit is king, many leaders are viewing technology investments as a key part of both managing costs and increasing revenues.

In 2024 the tasks ahead will be complicated once again by geo-political events, the shift in technology towards low-code and API-driven solutions, as well as the increased demand for specific skills. There is (as we know) still a huge lack of development resources with a deep understanding of modern tooling, but there are signs of that easing as startups find raising money more challenging.

In Berlin where there are so many high-growth companies trading alongside more traditional firms, our dinner on November 9th is an opportunity to take a step back and look at the landscape for growth in 2024.

Over a working supper we will discuss:

  • What does growth mean for you? Slow, sustainable or rapid & risky?
  • Where does strategy and technology meet to achieve growth?
  • With the economy predicted to return to growth in 2024 - what are the lessons we can learn from the last 4 years of unpredictability?
