As Speaker!


A host leads a discussion with 8-10 participants on a specific topic for 60 minutes. Typically the topic will be introduced in a short verbal presentation by the host following a discussion among all participants. This format is highly conversational and perfect for learning from each other and networking with other participants and thought leaders.


An expert in a field gives an in-depth presentation about a specific topic with 20-30 participants. Masterclasses give participants the chance to have a focused learning experience and interact with experts and a small group. The sessions can range from presentation-style to interactive.

“Jeck’n’Tech is an excellent opportunity to meet & connect to the shapers of the cologne tech ecosystem – combined with a fantastic lineup of speakers, a great atmosphere, and the unique carnival spirit. I am really looking forward to it!”

Maximilian Fleitmann, Co-Founder & CIO

“I’m looking forward to all the ‘tech-jecken’ and I’m curious about the exchange with some Kölsch.”

Victor ter Smitten, Co-Founder & CEO

“As founder and managing director of our Sport Tech Startup As Good As Pros, I am delighted to be part of the Jech’n’Tech Event! Not only because it is a very valuable opportunity to expand our own investor and start-up network, but also to actively support the local Rhineland start-up ecosystem. And to be able to combine this with carnival is priceless for a Cologne-Bonn start-up like ours.”
