10 new startups started their pre-Accelerator journey with Red Brick yesterday!

In these three weeks they will test and validate their ideas. They will define the next steps, find creative pathways to approach the problems they are solving and hopefully learn from each other.

The batch is full of great energy and peer support. The teams are working on different problems to solve. From improving access to menstrual pads to ramping up the user experience in cafes and gyms to monitoring air quality and revolutionizing self-development and time management through AI, teams are exploring a wide range of topics.

Amazing to be working with these teams and helping them on their paths.
It’s going to be exciting to see where they end up!

Are great teams built? Or are they hired?

What do we need to know to build superteams?

What is the preferences model that revolutionized high-performing teams?

On April 25, 2023 at 16:00 – 19:00 we are organizing an open-for-all session with Pouria Kay sharing insights on “How to build superteams?”. Join us to learn the fundamentals behind high-performing teams and what is the secret sauce. 10 years ago, Pouria found out “thinking diversity” term when leading his own design team. He spent the next years studying the topic and that’s where the “preferences model” method came from. In this session he shares insights by digging deeper into these key topics:

  • How to build trust and a bigger brain in the team?
  • How to create a safe team culture?
  • What are motivational drivers and how to boost motivation and joy in the team?

The session takes place on the 5th floor of Platform6. The official part ends at 19:00. We continue with light discussion and networking. Drinks and snacks will be served.
