Fabian’s Keynote at DNX Berlin: Writing the life story you want to read

Fabian’s Keynote at DNX Berlin: Writing the life story you want to read

Exactly today, one year ago, Vin, Dom and Fabian started StartupDiaries. As with most things worth doing, it started as a crazy idea; running our company from a Land Rover was pretty ambitious. Through a deep belief in the idea, and taking the necessary incremental steps, one at a time, we made the whole adventure a reality. Before we could blink an eye, we were sitting in the Land Rover somewhere in a desert in Peru, doing a call with a client in the US and it felt like the most normal … Continue reading Fabian’s Keynote at DNX Berlin: Writing the life story you want to read

Ep. 08: Ctrl+Alt+Del in the Jungle

Ep. 08: Ctrl+Alt+Del in the Jungle

After a really long drive across Chile and into Peru – the team arrived in Lima exhausted and it wasn’t getting better. Endless interviews, new business, and keeping up with Startup Diaries – it all became almost unbearable. To relieve the stress, the team took a business incentive, a retreat, deep into the Peruvian jungle to escape the day-to-day and reset with the help of a shaman and his substances.

Ep. 07: Digital Nomads in the Desert

Ep. 07: Digital Nomads in the Desert

Our road trip from Santiago into Peru, took us through 3500km of the wildest, most barren landscape you can come across. To the west the Pacific Ocean with crashing waves and endless beaches, dotted with the occasional fishing village. To the right – deserts that stretch as far as the eye could see. A marked contrast from the waterfalls and other landscape we’d been through to date. We would need every bit of the Defender’s ruggedness to make it – without missing a single meeting. It took a lot of … Continue reading Ep. 07: Digital Nomads in the Desert

How To Run a Company From a Land Rover Defender (While Driving Across South America)

How To Run a Company From a Land Rover Defender (While Driving Across South America)

Tech Open Air Berlin is the perfect “unconference” for Berlin. It is a city that is bustling with creativity, in the worlds of science, music, art, and of course, tech. Since 2012, TOA has been bringing these ideas together for 2 days, packed with workshops, music events, parties, “pitch-nics” and great opportunities for interdisciplinary networking between normally separated worlds. So it was a great honor to be able to present Startup Diaries in a workshop entitled “How To Run a Company From a Land Rover Defender”. Fabian shared what he learnt … Continue reading How To Run a Company From a Land Rover Defender (While Driving Across South America)

Talking to Teleport

Talking to Teleport

If you are a digital nomad, or an ex-pat, you’ve probably heard of Teleport. To sum it up in their own words, they “build software for startup people on the move”. For those who move with their families around the globe, who know how complex these moves can be, Teleport is a lifesaver. Figuring out where to stay, what to expect, where to pay taxes or which visa to get, it’s their mission to make it all easier for you. So when they wanted to talk to us about our … Continue reading Talking to Teleport

Our Perfect Roadtrip Playlist

Our Perfect Roadtrip Playlist

We’ve driven over 18,500 km in the past few months. Ok, we’re guessing really. Who counts that high? A lot of it travelling as slow as 40km/hour driving on hairpin curves with rivers running through them. It’s a lot of time in a car. We listen to a lot of music. And shout out the lyrics, generally out of key. Here are a few of the songs that we’ve chosen that get us moving in La Oficina: Fab’s Picks:   Dominic’s Picks:   And Vin’s of course:   What’s your … Continue reading Our Perfect Roadtrip Playlist
