  • Yvonne Koerner

    Graduate Masterclass &
    MatchlabN Member

    "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

    Facilitator Masterclass &

    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 were delighted to work with Simone Lis to support us with curating and organizing a Fashion Innovation Journey that DEFACTO and Salesforce were hosting together. (...)

    So when our C-level tour kicked off, it was thanks to Simone that many doors opened up, from business clubs to startups and one of the leading universities. (...) The journey was a great success, all participants rated this trip a valuable top-tier experience.”

    "Whilst researching our new German book

    "Germany digital: Our answer to
    Silicon Valley"

    Simone Lis, a corporate innovation

    the secrets of Silicon Valley.”
