Willi Ibbeken

What motivates you?


Solving problems and developing products that have a positive impact on people's lives. To experience that is a lot of fun and very rewarding for me.




What is your Background?


I discovered my enthusiasm for the analysis and development of products and startups while studying media studies. I initially worked for the renowned media agency “Scholz & Friends” and helped clients from various industries develop and implement digital media campaigns. Later I worked at Axel Springer for Europe's largest news app "upday". In 2016 I co-founded the startup "Inspora" with the aim of personalizing the shopping experience of fashion customers. At the same time, I received the prestigious EXIST scholarship from the Federal Ministry of Economics, which supports founders with extraordinary ideas.




What do you do in your startup "Inspora"?


As managing director, I have built up the corporate structure and continue to develop it. I plan, manage and control all important processes and make sure that we achieve our goals. I have built a ten-person team of developers, designers, sales and marketing and lead the team on a daily basis. I'm also responsible for the development and implementation of our marketing and sales strategy, with which we have already reached millions of customers, have concluded numerous collaborations with major fashion brands and have attracted attention from the biggest media outlets such as Handelsblatt, WELT or Tagesspiegel.




What topics are you responsible for at VentureWizards?


Business plan, company structure, product strategy, team, marketing, sales, storytelling, project management, founder personality and network




What do you do in your free time?


As a former competitive hockey athlete, I still try to be on the pitch as often as possible. I also like long-distance running because it helps to clear my head. I like reading biographies and studying philosophy - most recently the teachings of stoicism. I'm passionate about writing and I'm the author of two books on growth hacking and relationship commerce.




Can you share a fun fact about yourself?


I drank beer, ate potato salad and discussed politics with the chancellor candidate Per Steinbrück in a friend's flat in Berlin. More here...





Andreas Pavlenko

What motivates you?


I love data because it can be used to learn so much about the world, we live in. In addition, it helps to solve problems and gain new knowledge and experience. I myself like to share my learnings with others so that they can learn from it.




What is your Background?


During my economics studies I discovered my interest in data science. I initially used my analytical and data-driven expertise as the founder of the investment company "PII". Working with a number of companies in the e-commerce sector, I have specialized in analyzing customer behavior. In 2016 I co-founded the fashion technology company "Inspora". At the same time, as an author, I deal with the topics of customer experience and customer loyalty and regularly publish my findings in blogs, talks and well-known media.




What do you do in your startup "Inspora"?


I'm responsible for our product management. I use customer-centric and data-driven methods to ensure that we solve our customers' problems and develop a product that customers love. Under my leadership, a product has been created that reaches hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers and is growing continuously. In addition, I manage our finances, ensure the financing of our company and look after our investors.

Product management, prototype development, business model, data analysis, finance, investor network




What do you do in your free time?


In my free time I like to play tennis, go jogging or try to master the routes while bouldering. In addition to my sporting activities, I like to read a lot - especially biographies and books on startup topics.

I ran 42 km without running shoes at the Berlin Marathon.
