This year 4YFN, Sónar and MWC introduce xside, a groundbreaking gathering where converging creative communities unite. xside couldn’t have better ambassadors than Yvan Boudillet, Turo Pekari and Catherine Bischoff. Meet the men and woman helping the world get to know about the brand new event for design, creativity and technology.
Yvan is passionate about bridging artistic and tech talents who invent jointly new ways to create, discover, experience and monetize music. That’s why he founded TheLynk, an advisory agency dedicated to connecting the dots between startups and creative industries with a focus on music.
All about creating new ways to operate, xside is pleased to have Turo Peraki, who has been leading Teosto Futures Lab, which has driven new approaches on how music rights management organisation work globally. Peraki is based in Helsinki, Finland and is frequently speaking and lecturing around the world in creative and tech industry events.
Nothing is as cool as Berlin, that’s why having Catherine Bischoff, the CRO at Europe’s largest curated community of innovators and creators, Factory Berlin, feels like hitting a milestone. She works with founders, investors, industry, accelerators and academic institutions to develop dynamic programs for Germany’s fast-changing global economy. Catherine’s own global mindset to the German innovation landscape brings about a great opportunity to learn, as they say, to think global and act local.
We owe a huge debt of thanks to these brilliant minds, master networkers and community champions. So here we say a big thank you! Thank you for supporting the first ever xside!
