Why you should listen

Hi, I am Cephas Ndubueze, I am passionate about building products that users love. I first discovered this at D.school, when I combined and focused my professional skills (BSc. in Engineering and Master’s in IT & Innovation) to develop user-centered products, leveraging Design Thinking as a tool. I went on building B2C marketplaces as an entrepreneur in residence at Atameo (acquired by Mapify - backed by Lakestar) and at Factory Berlin. Following this experience, I joined the Adidas innovation team to work on commercializing radical innovation from the Adidas HQ. During this time, I experienced how to manage multiple stakeholders and align their business expectations. While completing his Master of Science in IT & Innovation Management, I leveraged my experiences to scale Valuer team from 10 to 70 employees as a product manager. Valuer was recently listed on Nasdaq. After my studies, I joined the investment team of Signals, an early-stage VC Fund in Berlin. However, after getting a better understanding of the VC industry, I realized that I would prefer to build my own company. I left Signals at the end of 2020 to start Newcon, for an idea that I already came up with back in 2018 after visiting a conference ins Lisbon. In my spare time, I love to organize gatherings of all sizes (small running dinners to larger events) in order to bring people with diverse educational and cultural backgrounds together. Furthermore, I support Diversity VC - Future VC, which helps underrepresented groups access the Venture Capital industry by connecting talented individuals with VCs through internships and job opportunities, on a voluntary basis as the Germany - Program Manager. With Newcon, we set up the mission to democratize expert knowledge, for anyone, anywhere, on-demand!
