FTL Speaker Night: Panel Discussion on Corporate Culture

  • Freeletics Lothstraße 5 Munich (map)

We invite everyone to join the first Female Tech Leaders podium discussion! We partnered up with WeWork and Freeletics to create this special satellite event for the Tech Conference.

This time, we are shaking things up a bit with Speaker Night. Instead of the usual talks, there will be a panel discussion around the topic of company culture at the Freeletics offices in Munich.

As part of the panel discussion, five exciting personalities will represent their four employers and the respective work culture. In a lively exchange, we will get to know their view on work environment, company mission, value and ethics, then there will be time to pester your questions. You will also have the possibility to get in touch with each other while enjoying food and drinks.


We are very happy to welcome the following speakers

Who is hosting and collaborating with us


WeWork provides more than 253,000 members around the world with space, community, and services through both physical and digital offerings. WeWork is redefining success as measured by personal fulfillment, not just the bottom line. There has been a macro shift toward a new way of work - one focussed on a movement towards meaning. WeWork is accelerating that movement. This summer WeWork is opening in Munich.


In 2013, a small German startup began disrupting the fitness industry. A multi-billion dollar industry which, until then, had been dominated by stationary gyms and exclusive personal trainers. Within a few years, this bootstrapped company became the creator of some of the world’s most popular fitness apps. Now with 130 employees, 25 million users, 4 apps and a clothing line, Freeletics is one of the fastest-growing sports and lifestyle companies in the world. Since day one, Freeletics has been driven by the vision of helping everyone to become the best version of themselves, both physically and mentally. We strongly believe that every individual in the world, no matter their background, situation or genetics, has the potential to become the best they can be – and we will help them on that journey. Thus, the founders created a concept to allow all people to train their physical strength and willpower without hurdles such as money, equipment, schedules or experience. To train “free” of limits. And so Freeletics was born.



Doors open at 6:30 PM and we will begin at 7 PM. You will need to show your Eventbrite booking.
