About The Weekly Startup

The Weekly Startup is an experiment. I launch a startup every week, to find out what works and what doesn’t. By doing this I want to learn what makes a startup successful.

I am doing this, because I want to help other people avoiding mistakes I’ve made and building better startups. This blog should bring real-life experiences, proven techniques and inspiration to you.

I want to tell you the truth about starting a business. Therefore you won’t find here the polished startup stories you read in business magazines. Instead you will find stories of long hours of work, stories of failure, stories of rejection – and stories of success.

I really hope you enjoy The Weekly Startup. Please feel free to send me your feedback or your ideas at any time.

About Me

My name is Christoph Biallas and I live in Hamburg, Germany.

I studied economics & engineering here in Germany and worked as a management consultant for consulting firms in Germany and Norway.

After 4 years of work in the management consulting business, I decided to launch the incubator and management consulting firm 8seeds. I am doing this business together with my business partner and good friend Fabian Trimpop. Our incubator invested in our own ideas and in ideas of other people. We tested round about 10 business ideas till now, where 3 of them are now successful businesses

Besides of being a CEO and management consultant I am a speaker, management coach, sparing partner for business ideas and a dad.

If you are a business owner, a manager or just a curious person, please feel free to contact me via email or Twitter. I would love to help you by bringing your business to the next level – mostly within a week icon wink About
