    P4F #017 with Henrik Hahn, CDO of Evonik Industries & CEO of Evonik Digital

    P4F #017 with Henrik Hahn, CDO of Evonik Industries & CEO of Evonik Digital

    In our current podcast episode, we look at an aspect that doesn't come up so often in our conversations: the closing of a B2B platform. For this, we caught up with Henrik Hahn from Evonik Industries.

    Henrik is Chief Digital Officer of the Evonik Group and CEO of Evonik Digital. In his role, he initiated the development of a marketplace in 2017 - an absolute novelty in the very traditional chemical industry. 3 years later, however, the platform is already history.

    Why Evonik abandoned the idea, what hurdles Henrik had to deal with, and what he nevertheless learned from this journey into the startup world - that's what he talks about rather frankly with Natalie and Matthias.

    P4F #016 with Thilo Kassen, Executive manager of Prisma

    In our latest Episode we were very pleased to welcome Thilo Kassen, Executive Manager of PRISMA Capacity, the leading gas capacity platform in Europe. Together with Thilo we discussed the interesting shareholder model behind the company and how sustainability and climate change affect the future gas market in the long run.

    PRISMA Capacity is acting as the leading gas capacity trading platform in Europe. Within their marketplace they offer the possibility to easily auction transmission gas capacity at primary and secondary market level. Founded in 2005, PRISMA is currently connecting 45 infrastructure operators and over 600 shipper companies all over Europe. Although the number of players on the platform sounds quite small, PRISMA manages about 70% of the European gas market which is highly fragmented.

    What makes PRISMA so special is the shareholder model they operate. Founded and owned by many energy companies around Europe, this cross-country collaboration model of PRISMA could act as a role model for other industries and european wide platforms initiatives

    We are very pleased to discuss together with Thilo Kassen, Executive Manager of PRISMA Capacity, about the background of the company's foundation and the shareholder management that goes along with its business model.

    P4F #015 with Henrik Lauridsen - Founder & Managing Director of Gerbus Academy & Peter Evans - Managing Partner at PSI

    Platforms are an important topic for each company strategy. But we see in our projects a big knowledge gap on executive / leader level but also on team level. Companies think they can build platforms just like they built products. There was a study from BITKOM in 2019 showing this gap -> only 5% of Executives understand this topic and have the skills to lead those initiatives. We want to explore what kind of roles and skills are required to build & scale a platform. How to educate future platform leaders & teams?
