CEO/Investor Talk: With the new context, comes a new paradigm for the company

Times are changing. Whether you view the changing conditions and the new economic context of the company as a crisis or an opportunity is up to you as a financial manager.

The only certainty is that there are currently many changes that need to be taken into account in the financial decision-making and structural orientation of the company.

In this panel, CEOs and investors will talk about the current situation, which necessitates a paradigm shift within the company to be implemented as early as possible in order to chart a secure course for the future. Because the interest rates are going up, money is becoming more expensive. Hence valuations at the stock exchange are dropping as well as the valuations for companies. The economic climate is different now for startups and scaleups as well, where growth has become a too difficult goal to achieve. Instead, efficiency is needed to find a new path for development for a fast growing scaleup at full speed.

The new questions are:

  • What are the new KPI we need to optimise?

  • How can we account for these KPI within the company?

  • Have founders sufficiently realised and planned for this new reality in the eyes of the investors?

This session will be held in English.

The corporate echo sounder - early warning systems as an opportunity (DE)

Since the StaRuG came into force on 1 January 2021, an obligation for early crisis detection for the management also applies by law. What at first glance appears to be an imposition should be seen as an opportunity for companies. For the earlier trends in the course of business are recognised, the greater the room for manoeuvre for course correction. This is especially true in times of recession - even for healthy companies. The aim of this lecture is to explain the possible design of corporate early crisis detection using indicators and instruments as examples.

This session will be held in German.
