The Event

The Gründerszene Dinner is an exclusive and unique dinner series, which brings together leaders of the digital economy for exclusive networking opportunities.
 
Originally founded in 2012 as the popular CEO Dinner by three international start-up entrepreneurs, Constantin Bisanz, Kolja Hebenstreit and Lukas Gadowski, the event format has been expanded to include a CxO dinner which invites HR managers, CTOs, CFOs and CDOs, offering a one-of-a-kind platform for meaningful exchange.
 
The event gives a wide range of possibilities for a regular and thriving exchange of plans and ideas.
The guest list is always hand-picked: Each time, 30-50 international top level entrepreneurs and leading minds of the digital scene get to meet to strengthen exchange of leading ideas.

Participants

CEO as well as CXO dinners are invitation only events. They gather a selected round of start-up CEOs, heads of departments, founders, as well as key managing partners of the best Venture Capital firms to interact in an informal way. The key selection criteria are the relevance and the performance of the invited participants and their companies. Invitations are exclusive and non-transferable.

  • Restricted number of participants for each event
  • Invitations are based on the participants’ relevance and influence within the community
  • CEO dinners as well as participants have a strong focus to disrupt and create new ideas
  • CXO dinners focus on exchange of plans, ideas and trends within the participants’ specific area of expertise

History

As with most start-up business ideas, the Gründerszene Dinner series developed from a personal experience of the founders Constantin Bisanz (Briends4Friends) Lukasz Gadowski and Kolja Hebenstreit (Team Europe). Having travelled the world and attended dozens of start-up events, they found a lack of exclusive networking opportunities in that space - not only in their hometown Berlin but on a global scale. Hence the idea of an exclusive networking event series for a selected group of top entrepreneurs, founders and investors was born.

The first Gründerszene Dinner, formerly CEO Dinner, took place in September 2011 in Berlin and was a huge success with Germany´s best entrepreneurs as well as with top international founders and investors.

Following the warm welcome of the start-up community and explicit requests for more Gründerszene Dinners in relevant start-up hubs around the world, New York City and San Francisco were the next destinations for the event series in spring 2012 – again with a compelling success.

The Gründerszene Dinners offer a much appreciated networking opportunity to high-flying entrepreneurs from all continents.
