"Without hard work, there is no success even in Silicon Valley!" says Prof. Dr. Tobias Strobl. The topic of his lecture at the Innovation Forum BITZ OPEN on 25 May 2023 in Oberschneiding was "Success factors and risk minimisation for the exponential growth of start-ups - lessons learned from Silicon Valley".

Tobias Strobl completed his doctorate in the field of aerospace engineering at the Technical University of Munich. He is the inventor of several internationally recognised patents, commissioned by the Airbus Group for innovative, all-electric aircraft technologies and has extensive professional experience in start-up, corporate and academic environments in North America, Europe and Asia. He teaches "Methodology of Scale" at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology.

His expertise as a lead mentor at the German Accelerator Silicon Valley, Open Austria and the ITU Seed Technology Accelerator as well as a lecturer at the INSEEC Business School and strategic advisor to several technology start-ups, he brings his expertise as a lead mentor to the Silicon Valley School at BITZ Oberschneiding.

For what reasons are investors interested in a company? What criteria do they use to make their selection? Tobias Strobl answered these questions in his lecture.Why should entrepreneurs always put their product and corporate strategy to the test? First and foremost, it is about understanding customer needs and their requirements and wishes for the product. This must be questioned again and again. No matter how difficult the hurdle is to conduct the so-called "customer interviews". Only the exact knowledge of the customer's wishes guarantees the success of a product. With this knowledge, the product must be further developed and re-tested in order to then start the next validation step.

Anyone who would like to learn more about these topics and the Silicon Valley School is cordially invited to the BITZ Oberschneiding. The BASEBALL, BEER & BURGER summer party is scheduled for 20 July 2023.

The next Innovation Forum BITZ OPEN will take place on 28 September 2023. Prof. Matthias Notz will speak on the topic: Ecosystem Thinking instead of "Mia san Mia". He will show how to create a successful start-up ecosystem in Lower Bavaria and what the "Z" in BITZ stands for. Further information can be found at www.th-de.de/bitz or www.th-deg.de/svp.
