About

Startup Grind: Ahti Heinla (Co-founder, CEO & CTO at Starship)

Ahti Heinla is one of the most highly rated founders in Estonia. We all know the story of Skype and its escalating impact on Estonia and on the local startup community. We are all familiar with Starship Technologies and the groundbreaking work they are doing in the field of robotics.

However, this time we will not be discussing Skype or Starship.

We will be talking about building a tribe with whom you can conquer mountaintops. About assembling world-class teams of dedicated people, immune to the lures of headhunters. About creating a mission people can truly get behind and work towards, without burning out.

Ahti will be interviewed by Liis Narusk, co-founder and CEO at Elevate by Garage48, bringing the power of co-creation and experimentation to established companies.

The interview is followed by networking and drinks at the Meet & Greet Area.
