Smart Networking presentation, Sessions and certainly Relationship Maintenance at the Digital Week

The entire Kiel team will be on the road at the Digital Week. In particular, we will attend many sessions and workshops at the Science Centre at the University as a central location for the digital economy. tamanguu co-founder and CEO Dr. Johannes Ripken will give a presentation at the Networking Summit by opencampus and DiWiSH on “Smart Networking”.

The event will also include a keynote address by Matthias Oetken (Managing Director of N26 Bank**), the Prototyping Week finale and a great networking event for the Kiel economy.

tamanguu Pitch in the Innovator’s Suite, Sessions and Networking at the Reeperbahn Festival

Probably the most important event of the German music industry will take place in Hamburg from 19th to 22nd September. So it’s no surprise that we are there where our primary target group meets up: the managers and artists of the music industry.

The Reeperbahn Festival has always been an event at which the music industry informed itself about trends and innovations of all kinds for its industry. For startups there is an own stage in the Innovator’s Suite, where we present tamanguu with a pitch. Johannes from the tamanguu team presents our startup on Thursday, 20.09.2018, at 5 pm.

Another highlight will be the annual Meet the Mannheimers, which is organized by the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg. This event also takes place on Thursday evening.

Of course we will also meet many new and old contacts to gain cooperation partners, media partners and customers for tamanguu.

Participation in the Startup Camp Schleswig-Holstein at the Dräger Garage in Lübeck

This week tamanguu was invited to pitch, which decided whether tamanguu could participate in this year’s Startup Camp Schleswig-Holstein. The day after we got the confirmation and we are looking forward to a very intensive coaching, training and networking week in the last week of September.

We are curious about the other startups participating and about the cooperation with the mentors, among others Nils Passau (analytix GmbH), Darius Karampoor, Christian Lange (networkteam GmbH), Martin Marx and others.


Für jedes dieser Events gilt: Wenn du uns treffen möchtest, einfach kontaktieren! Wir freuen uns darauf!

Music Industry Insight: It is not what you know, it is who you know (Richard James Burgess)

- Posted by

At Wallifornia MusicTech I had the honour to meet Richard James Burgess, (CEO A2IM). At the conference we talked about our doctoral theses and exchanged them in the further email communication.

The core topic of tamanguu respectively tamanguu.contacts is business networking, i.e. the establishment and maintenance of your own contact network in order to be economically more successful. The importance of the network, or rather a well-maintained network, is the topic of the case study in Richard James Burgess’ doctoral thesis. The major title of the doctoral thesis is: “Structural Change in Music Industry: The evolving Role of the Musician”. In the aforementioned case study “It is not what you know, it is who you know” James reports on his first time in England, which shows how difficult it is to build on the previous success without a strong network despite successes and grown networks in other countries. In fact, I experienced it similarly in my time in England (2009-2012), when I wrote my doctoral thesis about artist development in the music industry.

Actually, “It is not what you know, it is who you know” doesn’t hit the nail on its head. It would need to end with “who knows you”, as in the ideal solution, it is your relevant business partner who continuously choose you to work with or to recommend to other potential customers. That’s tamanguu’s top-of-mind approach which we pursue in our guided relationship management.
