Conference details

The "Lange Nacht der Startups" was an entrepreneur meeting, technology show and hackathon around new technology offered by Deutsche Telekom. It was first and foremost there to connect entrepreneurs with the VC part of DT.

Your goals

We were asked by DT to give a talk on Firefox OS and to round up the whole day with a closing keynote of 15 minutes.

Audience type and size

I gave the closing keynote of the conference part of the event but as there were a few hickups I only had about 30 people in the audience. Mostly entrepreneurs, a bit of press.

Materials (eg. slides, presentations, audio clips, photos etc…)

The talk transcript (as it were) is here: A tale of bricks and lost manuals Slides:

Organization rating (1: bad - 10: excellent)


Overall feel of the event

This was a nice to have for our partners, but didn't have much of an impact for Mozilla

This event helped us…

Re-affirm our partnership with DT

Was it worth it? Should we participate again?

It wasn't costly, so giving another talk makes sense. Seeing that DT didn't have any Firefox OS devices or showcases there was disappointing and should be part of the agreement next time.
