Talk #33: From One-Man-Show to One-Man-Show (to One-Man-Show)
Niko Alm founded his first enterprise in 2000 during the last dying breaths of the first internet bubble. Since then he kept a good pace of approx. one new company per year, including the rooting of the international media company VICE to Austria. After a streak of establishing new companies, mergers and acquisitions, he sold most of his shareholdings to VICE and starting investing in all sorts of companies. In his talk, Niko tries to find patterns of success of failures of his own ventures in the development of his startups.
