Q&A with Jonas Hermann
Founder & CEO @ Stagecast
What are your plans for the future?
Reaching new goals and milestones, both expected and unexpected, and have a whole lot of fun together with the Stagecast team while doing so!
Why did you become an entrepreneur?
I am a firm believer in the power of passionate work. I love what I do, which shows in my everyday performance. From a young age, I have always been running my own projects: Organizing concerts, building websites, making films and starting several small companies. I just can't help it! I love creating stuff that lasts.
Aside from achieving commercial success, what do you see as your startup’s mission?
We believe commercial success is only the means to reach our goal. We create astonishing live interactions for entertainment events and challenge the way we interact with mobile technology by smartly designing the phone into our environment. We design to minimize screen time and maximize real life experiences.
Describe your perfect day at work.
On a perfect day we have a meeting with an artist or sports director and plan the use of Stagecast in their next event followed by a workshop for designing coming product features, spend time with our colleagues and have a fika or beer in our co-working space in Östermalm!
What is your best advice for entrepreneurs who are just starting out?
You only failed when you stop trying.
