By Iskender Dirik, MD/CEO of Microsoft ScaleUp Berlin and Venture Partner for EQT Ventures, one of the biggest VC funds in Europe.
One of my favorite quotes from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is “Don’t be a know-it-all, be a learn-it-all”. Microsoft for Startups’ charter is to help B2B startup founders to scale their businesses. With ‘learn-it-all’ mantra in mind, we’re providing educational sessions with international experts on topics such as negotiation, talent development, pricing strategy and deck design – all of which are sessions that we believe will help even experienced serial entrepreneurs to achieve more.
