More about the talk:

The Silicon-Valley-Mindset” with Mario Herger

Silicon Valley is the most innovative region in the world, with many companies such as Facebook, Google, Apple, Uber, Airbnb or Tesla conquering markets and disrupting whole industries in our countries. They also force our legal frameworks to adapt, home grown industries to respond, which we often see as unforeseen changes that threaten us. But how is SiliconValley doing this? Is it the water, the air, or genetic differences? The answer is no, given that from German-speaking countries alone close to 70,000 people live and work here, often in leading positions. The difference is in behaviors that people show. In this talk we will dig deeper into what those behaviors are, how we can show them ourselves, and how we can combine them with our own strengths.
