Mr. Felix Staeritz

Mr. Felix Staeritz, you are an entrepreneur on your own. What are the crucial cornerstones of Corporate Entrepreneurship for you, what do you think about, when Corporate Entrepreneurship comes to your mind?
A new mindset in exchanging and developing between Entrepreneurs and cooperation is most crucial.
You are an entrepreneur from the scratch on. If you had to give your most important advice for entrepreneurs, what would you say?
In my career the most important advice I received and how I steer my ventures is “always walk the extra mile”. Being an entrepreneur can be hard and frustrating sometimes, but believing in an idea and be open for Feedback always helped me.
Consulting and taking leadership tasks shaped you. What was your most valuable learning from your previous companies?
Its not just about the idea or the capital. The right team is what really makes the difference.
What is your motivation to enter the International Corporate Startup Summit in Zurich as a speaker and what should attendees take along?
Corporate entrepreneurship is crucial for large companies, enabling these organizations – that are traditionally averse to risk-­taking – to innovate, driving leaders and teams toward an increased level of corporate enterprising. We from Factor10 want to thrive this process and push further the digitalization in Europe.
