Constantin Bisanz (AUT)
Constantin Bisanz is the Founder of Brands4Friends, the No. 1 Shoppingclub in Germany. Members of Brands4Friends get branded goods with large discounts.
Just before celebrating Christmas in 2010, Constantin Bisanz sold Brands4Friends to eBay for €150 Mio. making it one of the biggest exits in Germany in the last couple of years. The short amount of time (Brands4Friends was launched in 2007) between the launch and the exit is quite impressive.
Constantin achieved several awards – for example “German Entrepreneur of the Year” by the Harvard Business School Association or “Exit Champion” for realizing Germany’s largest Internet exit transaction .
He started his first company when he was 14 years old. His passions are kitesurfing, which he started 10 years ago, and photography. During the past six months Constantin has been traveling, photographing and kiting around the world.
The experiences and learnings of the Brands4Friends journey are going to be discussed at the STARTUP WEEK 2011.
