What is your job aside from supporting Startup Weekend?

I am the founder and managing director of the online marketing agency morefiremedia. We're specialized on Google AdWords, Facebook Ads and Landing Page Optimization. We've just been merged with our partner agency rankingCHECK and will soon merge legally. More information: morefiremedia.de/fusion/


Have you already participated in Startup Weekend? If not, why are you participating?

Unfortunately not yet and I will bring it also this year only on a sponsoring, since there are date collisions. But I've heard a lot from last year and look forward to next year.


What was your motivation to support Startup Weekend?

I think it’s extremely important to support founders. To leave the safe haven of the employment relationship and working on realizing your own ideas is a great step. Because of my own experience, I know how valuable any support is that you can get. I've had a lot of support from great people and would like to do my part to help others succeed.


Do you personally profit from volunteering at Startup Weekend?

Karma :)


Do you have good advice for all future volunteers?

Meet new people, support others and share what you know always pays off. There's more to come back than you do.
