Im Rahmen der Mannheimer Gründergespräche (Founder Talks) am 9. Oktober werden zwei Mitgründer von Citydeal und frühere Topmanager von Groupon über ihre Gründungserfahrungen und ihr neustes Start up-Projekt - Quandoo - berichten

On Wednesday, October 9, Philipp Magin (co-founder of CityDeal, former CEO of Groupon DACH & International VP) and Sebastian Moser (former VP International Operations at Groupon, President 1&1 Internet Inc.) will come to Mannheim to talk about their latest venture: Quandoo. Guiding theme of their talk will be "Managing Local Sales – the secret of building a successful local commerce business".

Quandoo is a Berlin-based Local Commerce venture, founded by Philipp Magin and Dr. Daniel P. Glasner who were Co-Founders of Citydeal and CEOs of Groupon in Central Europe. Since late 2012, Daniel and Philipp (together with their co-founders Ronny Lange, Sebastian Moser and Tim-Hendrik Meyer) have been building the underlying platform for a modular operating system for local businesses. The team is convinced that local commerce is the “next big thing” and one of the largest and most promising sub-markets in the wired world. Three years ago, when couponing models began emerging around the globe, small and medium-sized local businesses started using web-based and mobile services in order to attract new customers, build loyalty, and improve operations.

Groupon, CityDeal and others were only the starting point of a massive transition of hundreds of thousands businesses representing a major fraction of all economies around the globe. Quandoo will be the driving force at the frontier of this major global development by enabling local merchants with a modular operating system and solving their major business needs.

Do not miss this great opportunity to learn about this highly interesting business model and get to know key figures of the German Startup scene in person. There will be a lot of room for questions and answers while having prezels & wine or other refreshments subsequent to the talk.
