Disrupt Berlin 2017 is coming up in December, and even though that is a ways off, we are already building out our content.

Disrupt is all about the most brilliant startups, entrepreneurs and investors, and Disrupt Berlin will be no exception. We’re delighted to announce the following two speakers:

Lucas Von Cranach
Founder & CEO @ Onefootball
Football has always been Lucas von Cranach’s passion. He was a supporter of 1. FC Cologne long before he was set to become an entrepreneur in the football industry. It all started in the early days of the smartphone when Lucas realized that there was no service providing fans with live scores and results. He started out with a simple SMS-service delivering live scores to the fans’ pockets. Only a few years later this service has turned into one of the most successful football-apps around the globe connecting more than 20 million fans.

Ijad Madisch
Co-Founder & CEO @ ResearchGate
Ijad Madisch is co-founder and CEO of ResearchGate, the professional network that connects the world of science and opens research up to all. Following his own frustrations as a researcher isolated in his lab, Ijad founded ResearchGate in 2008 together with his friends, fellow physician Dr. Sören Hofmayer and computer scientist Horst Fickenscher. ResearchGate has since grown to more than 12 million scientists around the world. Ijad earned his doctorate in the field of virology, while also studying computer science on the side. He spent several years working as a researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, focusing on tissue engineering and radiology. Under Ijad’s leadership, ResearchGate has attracted a group of renowned investors, including Bill Gates, Benchmark, Wellcome Trust and Founders Fund.

Disrupt Berlin 2017 takes place December 4-5 at the beautiful, historic Arena Berlin in the heart of Berlin, Germany. We can’t wait to see you all there!
