    E.61 Michelberger hotel and Berlin in the late 90’s – experiencing the zeitgeist with Nadine Michelberger

    E.61 Michelberger hotel and Berlin in the late 90’s – experiencing the zeitgeist with Nadine Michelberger

    From the start Nadine Michelberger together with her co-founder and husband Tom, wanted to create the first hotel in Berlin which replaced the typical lobby, with an open space that invites guests and visitors for encounters. This idea was born back in 2003.

    As years went by, the hotel has evolved as well. Today the Michelberger team is running the renowned restaurant Ora, they are producing the most sought after coconut water the 'Fountain of Youth', and are practicing regenerative agriculture at their Farm in Spreewald. 

    Michelberger is an experiment, a playground that is never meant to be finished or completed, but meant to create new ways for people to connect. 

    Today I asked Nadine about Berlin in the late 90’s, how the idea of Michelberger came to be, and why we see more and more restaurants in Berlin working with local producers and farmers from the Brandenburg area.

    Enjoy my conversation with Nadine and feel free to drop me a message if you learned something new today! Cheers to Season 3!

    E.57 Acknowledging your strengths and weaknesses as a founder with Emma Tracey

    E.57 Acknowledging your strengths and weaknesses as a founder with Emma Tracey

    Emma Tracey worked as a journalist in Colombia and founded a communications agency in South Africa. In 2015 she came to Berlin where she found herself doing something completely new - co-founding a recruitment platform called Honeypot. Reflecting back, Emma didn’t feel like she was “qualified” per se to found a tech company. But she also knew that she would figure most of it out. And she actually did. In fact in 2019 XING acquired Honeypot for €57 million, where Emma achieved what all founders dream of - successful establishment and the million-euro deal. Today we speak about why people hold themselves back as they think they aren’t good enough and how one can tackle that. We reflect on Emma’s success, explorations and what is holding her in Berlin.
