What are the digital misfits?
Digital misfits are people who are not satisfied with the status quo, who want to actively shape the future of work and society. It's people like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg who have changed the world as digital misfits. They are the ones with the innovative ideas, the IT talents, each Company desperately looking for the digital natives and the lateral thinkers of all generations and those people who are looking for a space for new ideas.
The Digital Misfits Festival gives these digital talents a platform to make themselves heard and create space for collaboration. At the same time, we help companies understand these talents, find them and win them over the long term. We are raising awareness and raising awareness that digital misfits are of the greatest importance for the digital future. And the current situation shows that this mission is more important than ever.
The goal of the initiative: Bring talent and HR together
The Digital Misfits initiative was founded in late 2017 by Dennis Schenkel and Hendric Mostert. Meanwhile, behind Digital Misfits is a community of enthusiastic people who want to shape the world of work and society in the future.
In terms of content, the community is driven by approx. 15 voluntary misfits from all over Germany, which make real-life events as well as content-related contributions and thus provide a basis for mutual exchange. With Digital Misfits we want to offer a platform where every committed person can get involved.
This is how we supported the digital misfits
The corona crisis unfortunately came during the advance sales for the Digital Misfits Festival 2020. The relatively cheap standard tickets (Misfits Tickets) should be subsidized in particular by the more expensive corporate tickets. However, since most companies have frozen budgets, tickets have not been sold and Festival 2020 cannot take place as planned. Unfortunately, despite the cancellation, there are massive costs for the location of around € 20.000, which are now no longer offset by income. These costs make digital misfits dangerously close to bankruptcy, which means that they could no longer sustain the community.
But the initiative would not be digital and certainly not misfits if it did not make the best of the situation! And so at least one virtual festival will take place on June 9, 2020. And that's exactly what we have on Startnext supported. And that's exactly why we are giving away three tickets - among all buyers and reviewers of one of our over 200 books.
