  • Does this sound like you?

    If YES, welcome to MatchlabN!


    My superpower as a kid was creativity. But, when I grew up, it somehow turned into expert knowledge. That's when I decided to foster more on my uniquely human skills.


    I've all these hidden talents, but my boss, colleagues, and industry peers do not see it. That's when I started to level up my visibility and make my profile more colorful.


    I'm passionate about my job, which pays my bills but I realized I want more in life. That's when I decided to make a significant impact in my particular area.


    I constantly want to learn new things and experiment, or I get quickly bored. That's when I started to actively seek out challenges that are way beyond my job description.


    I feel so depressed at work because I don't want to accept anymore "this is the way we have always done it". That's when I decided to find other like-minded peers who also questioning the status quo.

  • Hi, I'm Simone Lis

    Over ten years ago, I arrived in Silicon Valley with a suitcase and an idea. Against the advice of my family, I exchanged my steady but unfulfilling corporate management career in Germany for my California dream.


    I founded MatchlabN, a community-driven corporate development program to train Digital Fluency. This new mindset combines Digital Literacy with uniquely human skills like Emotional Intelligence, Creativity, and Critical Thinking.


    I turn professionals into energizing, empathetic Innovation Agents of their job. The goal is to think about the future we want to live in and use technology as an enabler of change to create it.


    In the past, my Silicon Valley leadership programs for C-Level clients were not diverse and inclusive. In 2020, I decided to change this. With my new community approach, I'm not excluding anyone, but I'm actively and intentionally including women.


    Seeing these women's transformations in my community within a couple of months, I genuinely believe Digital Fluency has the power to accelerate Equality in the workplace. That's why I founded MatchlabN.

    In today's dynamic world, it's a challenge to maintain a profound knowledge in relevant areas such as innovation and digitalization. Especially for C-Levels & decision-makers, this is an essential part of future-oriented corporate management. The innovative approach behind MatchlabN is the network. It builds on the knowledge transfer and encourages entrepreneurial and personal growth within an environment of international high-potentials - a continuous learning journey for those, who want to have an impact on things that really matter.

    Yvonne Koerner

    Alumna Cohort 1 &
    MatchlabN Ambassador

    "I don't know any other professional development program which combines a Masterclass with a community program to train Digital Fluency. It's like a club for "curious lifelong learners"! It's valuable for everyone, who is interested in innovation, technologies and digitalization. But first of all, it should be interesting for C-Level and decision makers, because they have to understand what's going on and need an overview about all the new technologies. Without this know-how, they can't make right, responsible and future making decisions. But most of us don't find the time and energy to educate ourselves with a full-time job or don't know where to start - MatchlabN has you covered! "


    Laura Kania

    Graduate Masterclass &

    MatchlabN Ambassador

    "Apart from C-Level & decision makers, I think the program is beneficial to anyone interested in innovation. From interns to CEOs, anyone who strives at continious education and wants to bring continiously new input and ideas into the company to supercharge their career."

    Jenna Fuentes

    Community Designer &

    MatchlabN Ambassador

    "The MatchlabN program is unique in terms of combining content around innovation, technologies and human intelligence and mixing it with Design Thinking, emerging technologies, Innovation Journeys and problem solving methodologies. It's a interactive program where you learn in 5 weeks a practical step-by-step framework that supports an innovative project at the end in one's company or personal goal.”

  • We want your investment to be 100% risk free

    If you engage with the Masterclass course materials, attend the live sessions, yet are unsatisfied in any way, we will refund your purchase.

    And if you find after enrolling that your schedule is busier than you thought, we will roll you forward into a future cohort and zero additional cost.

    However, part of what makes our Innovation Agent masterclass work is the financial accountability. If you do not engage with the course materials or fail to take action during the course, this does not qualify for a refund.
