CEO & Founder madeone (ex-Nike, ex-Ikea)
Over the last decades large brands and companies were not able to unlock the full potential of mass customization. The complexity of customized products as well as the direct to consumer business challenges are main barriers. Mass customization has to be considered more than ever before as a relevant growth driver for many established e-commerce business models. A key to success is to take-out complexity through-out the end to end process. Christian will share his own experiences with enabling customization business working for large corporations as Nike and Ikea, SMEs and his company madeone, focussed on 'Customization as a Service'.
