MEET THE STARTUP: GETLISTED


GetListed is a service for master level business students to get relevant work experience in a flexible manner by doing market research and customer discovery projects for companies globally.
 
We have a dream of helping students to get relevant work experience from early on, that’s why we founded GetListed. Probably you are willing to join us as well. To put it simply, GetListed offers market research and customer discovery projects for business students for a reward. Our customers are mostly startups, small and medium sized companies worldwide, that are looking for expand their business to other countries. You will get ready made forms to search information and share your knowledge as a local – for a fair reward.

In Denmark, there are numerous non-paid internships available for business students – they offer a great experience for many, but we at GetListed believe that students deserve to be paid and also learn by being freelancers. Working with projects occasionally will generate income for you as well as keep you still flexible for doing your projects at Copenhagen Business School. As a student in CBS you can find many great projects, whether you are from abroad, you might find cases to do about your home city or country.

As we are students and recent graduates ourselves, we know the struggle. Especially at CBS and in Copenhagen, not only does the students have very high rents to pay, but also in general, life in CPH is expensive.

Students are doing already a lot of valuable and free work for case companies in the courses at universities, what really raised a question in our minds – why not students could actually earn money from those kinds of projects as well? So in 2016, we founded GetListed, to connect startups and small companies to future top talents worldwide to get economy growing solutions done in a flexible manner and for a good reward.

So to get your hands dirty with real life projects -> GetListed now!

 

NUDGE CROWD: PEOPLE TO BUILD A COMMUNITY

NUDGE CROWD: LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO BUILD A COMMUNITY

Pictures from our Roskilde festival workshop

Nudge Crowd is looking for people to help them build a thriving community with behavioral enthusiasts

Nudge Crowd is a competition-based crowdsourcing platform where companies, NGOs and public organizations can get help to solve important and fun behavioral design challenges from people with expertise in how surroundings shape decision-making. Nudge Crowd’s most important asset is the crowd.

Our key to success is building an engaged community with people enthusiastic about how to use insights from behavioral science. We do so by hosting hackathons and other types of meetups. This year at Roskilde Festival we experimented with a different type of event for our community. We organized a workshop where our crowd members acted as nudge-gurus who helped the festival guests build nudges to keep their camps clean – “to nudge the nastiness away” as the title of the event suggested.

Nudge Crowd is participating in the entrepreneurial day because we are looking for people like ourselves who are intrigued by the potential of behavioral science to help people make better decisions for themselves and for the society.

In particular, we are looking for community managers from all around the world. Perhaps you are an exchange student, who, when you return home, would like to become a part of our team and help us build a community in your city. Your job will be to drink coffee with inspiring people and to arrange hackathons in your city to support the challenges that companies, NGOs and public organizations present on our platform. If you want to learn more, please visit us at www.nudgecrowd.com/joinourteam.

 

Remember to visit Nudge Crowd at CBS Entrepreneurial Day, where you can hear more about the community, and meet the team!

MEET THE STARTUP: LARSEN & ERIKSEN

MEET THE STARTUP: LARSEN & ERIKSEN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you feel like getting super inspired today, then we have good news for you. Get to know the brand: LARSEN & ERIKSEN is Danish watch & accessories brand, based in Copenhagen and launched by 2 guys who just got fed up by everyday boring life and wanted to do something that would make them get up with enthusiasm each morning. Are you already motivated to reinvent your own life? Read more!

 

So here is the story:

“Two years back, the idea of LARSEN & ERIKSEN was born. In order to understand why, take equal parts of the following ingredients:

  • Two best friends since 3rd grade
  • Two 9-5 day jobs that were “perfectly career oriented, very well-paid and extremely pretty-f***ing-average”
  • A nerdy passion for watches
  • Many years of never being able to afford to buy watches
  • Many years of travelling the world and seeing the diverse destinies of its inhabitants
  • A good old Danish winter depression + a strong lust to create something from scratch and to shape ones own life.

There you have it. That’s the foundation of LARSEN & ERIKSEN – and that’s why we do what we do.”

How do you keep yourself motivated and face challenges?

“In the two years that have passed since we came up with the idea of LARSEN & ERIKSEN, we have – like every other company – been through endless amounts of ups & downs. And through this, we have been through a pretty solid testing of our willpower as well as our ability to turn challenges into solutions.

What we find fun about all of these startup challenges is that (at least for us) two working days are very rarely the same. And just as we find ourselves starting to feel confident with one area of building our business, we bang our heads against a sky-high wall. Then we have to work our way around it by

  1. Learning (sometimes very) new things
  2. Igniting our creativity
  3. Igniting our diversity*

What is so beautiful about all of these ups-and-downs, all of these sky-high walls and all of these forced new learning processes is the feeling we have when we (every once in a while) leave the office. The feeling that has never been more stimulating, more meaningful and more rewarding. This is the exact feeling we felt, when we launched our business at the end of 2016.

Prior to that was three weeks of working an average of 17-18 hours a day. When we went to bed at 4:30 the morning before our launch, we simply couldn’t wait to get out of bed to work 17-18 hours again. Although we use the term “work” and we combine it with “17-18 hours a day” it simply doesn’t feel that way – it feels like being in control of our own life.”

*Jeppe is born and raised in logistics, Magnus has a degree in psychology.

If you had to start all over again, would you do it?

“ABSOLUTELY! So far, devoting ourselves to lives as entrepreneurs has been the best decision we’ve ever made.”

Are you crazy enough to think you can change the world?

“We might not change the entire world with our adventure but we definitely believe that we can scale our business and hereby – both directly and indirectly – touch the lives of a whole lot of people all over the world.”

Inspiring!

Oh, and by the way:

A wide selection of Larsen & Eriksen designs are now available at the legendary Louisiana Museum. The museum shop was recently awarded as the best museum shop of the world and we are probably as excited as they are!
