May was the second month I spent working with the great team at Kickstarter. On the 12th of May, Kickstarter launched in Germany, and with more than 100 projects going live on launch day and about € 500K pledged to German projects within the first 24 hours, Germany’s launch was the biggest international launch so far. I’m incredibly proud I could work on such a challenging assignment.
I’ve spent the majority of the month going from one location to another and speaking about Kickstarter in front of artists, students (HS München, Muthesius, HfG Offenbach,..), and startup professionals. I would even dare to say that I’ve developed a routine in public speaking. Still, the most challenging (and most exciting) moment of the month was my talk at the re:publica.
May also marks the month where Diana and I have finally managed to bring This Year Will Be Different: The Insightful Guide to Becoming a Freelancer out in print. You can now order the book via Amazon. I am even more excited that we’ve managed to secure some press and interviews about the book. I’ll share some links soon. Let’s make the next month as great as the last. Please let me know if you have a project I could get involved with.
