TECH CHAMPIONS SERIES LAUNCHES IN BERLIN

FWBBerlinBanner

 A Tour De Force!

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with WhiteBull, who connect the leaders in European innovation to global investment and corporate development though their legendary WhiteBull Summits. They bring together the best and the brightest – Europe’s top technology and media leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, and visionaries. Together, WhiteBull and Foundum are building the world’s most comprehensive platform for innovative, high-growth entrepreneurs – bringing global startup ecosystems closer together – both on- and offline.

Our exclusive cocktail series is an extension of the joint  mission – to connect the bright stars of European Tech, providing exposure, discussion, and the tools to help companies grow and succeed. Over the next few months, leading up to the global Pathways event in October, we’ll visit a dozen cities across Europe, searching for the standout firms and meeting with the movers and shakers of the industry.

Our tour kicks off in Berlin on April 29 at hub:raum Berlin. Thanks to partner Accelerasia, and with location partner hub:raum, we bring together 150-200 entrepreneurs, investors, corporates, and startup supporters for an evening including presentations from 5-10 hot local firms, a short panel on the local Innovation landscape, followed by personalized, top-notch networking.

This is an invite-only event. If you are interested in joining us, please make sure you have a Foundum profile and apply for the event here.

We look forward to see you at one of the events!

Foundum ‘shining’ fresh in Responsive Design

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

We’re proud to announce that Foundum has switched to Responsive Design and finally  is available on mobile devices and tablets. Check out the Look and Feel on our newly designed Homepage.

So, what is Responsive Web Design? It’s what allows mobile devices to be compatible with a website, it allows for a graceful transition from desktop, to tablet and in turn smartphone. It is slowly stopping the irritating ‘zooming in’ on pages because the text is too small to read, and the frustrations when you hit every menu area but the one you want, because the menu buttons are too small. It is the next stage in web design, and luckily for those who missed the 2013 hype, this year will see responsive web design get bigger and better. (Alethea Snart – Contributor at Dupree Creative)

Responsive design is no longer just a feature or an option, but it has become a development standard. If you’re thinking about building a website make sure it’s responsive right from the beginning. Have a look at these links to learn more about the importance of responsive design.
