What others say

    "Enterprise Goes Mobile" is an event series reflecting mobile as a resilient, unbreakable component in enterprise business process. It needed a keynote-speaker for its stop in #munichmt. @axelhoehnke combined all requirements for this engagement: mobile leadership, educating decision makers and addressing the mobile developer community. As the event revealed, Axel's keynote-speech was overwhelmingly positively received and trusted among the Central European enterprise mobile community. His long standing experience propels the mobile message to enterprises who then understand that the future of their business cannot circumvent the mobile paradigm. It needed the participation of a thought leader like Axel to make this event successful. I hope my recommendation is as thorough and diligent as Axel's preparation and guidance before the event and his presence at the event.

Jawbone - Valuation

Consumer electronics company Jawbone had more than enough money to take on Fitbit and other health-tracking devices in the "wearables" market. Top-tier venture capital firms invested hundreds of millions of dollars, lifting its valuation to $3.2 billion in 2014. Ultimately, all that money couldn't save Jawbone, which began liquidating proceedings in June after its fitness-tracker product failed to take off. It now ranks as the second largest failure among venture-backed companies, based on total funding raised, according to the research firm CB Insights
