Disruptive business models in e-commerce
Conference with Julia Bösch and Hans-Jürgen Schmitz
Is it still possible to gain competitive advantages through e-commerce that has, over the past few years, become very common? According to Julia Bösch, the answer is yes. Luxinnovation offers you a unique opportunity to meet this renowned entrepreneur who will, for the first time ever in Luxembourg, present her disruptive e-commerce model. Together with investor Hans-Jürgen Schmitz, she will discuss the importance of innovating continuously, also in marketing and sales.
Julia Bösch is co-founder of Outfittery - Europe’s most successful personal shopping platform for menswear - and was previously head of international business development at Zalando. She will share her experience of developing innovative business models in e-commerce and discuss how to gain visibility on an international scale.
Hans-Jürgen Schmitz is partner at Mangrove Capital Partners. He will discuss the subject of innovative business models from the perspective of venture capital investment and as one of Outfittery’s investors.
The event will be moderated by Jérôme Bloch, an entrepreneur active in the field of publishing in Luxembourg, and followed by a Q&A session.
The evening will close with our traditional networking cocktail to foster interaction and collaboration among start-ups. This will also be an excellent opportunity to meet investors and larger companies.
