STHLM Tech Fest 2018

Posted by Rebecca Sundvall on Sep 5, 2018 11:23:12 AM

This week we visited STHLM Tech Fest which was held at Stockholm Waterfront Congress. It was a full day of presentations by companies such as Google, Volvo Car Mobility, Uber, Stripe and Salesforce focusing on different topics ranging from machine learning to gender parity in the tech industry. In other words, it was truly an interesting and inspiring day.

The topic shifted towards payments in the afternoon when we got to hear a presentation by Adyen's co-founder and CCO, Roelant Prins where he talked about the reasons of the success behind the company.

These key points are:
- We build to benefit all merchants (not just one)
- We include different people to sharpen our ideas
- We launch fast and iterate
- We make good choices to build an ethical business and drive sustainable growth for our merchants
- We don’t hide behind email, instead we pick up the phone
- We talk straight without being rude
- Winning is more important than ego; we work as a team - across cultures and time zones
- We create our own path and won’t be slowed down by “stewards”
