The speaker at CreativeMornings/Stockholm this September was Carl Waldekranz of Tictail. Tictail, a “DIY” ecommerce platform from Sweden, has now raised €1.2 million in seed funding in a round led by Balderton Capital and European super-angel Klaus Hommels (TechCrunch).
In his CreativeMornings talk, Carl speaks on how his numerous failures led him to the great success is Tictail. Anyone thinking of launching their own startup or business should tune in and hear what he has to say.
Past CreativeMornings/Zurich speaker Antonio Scarponi is looking to create ELIOOO, an instruction book about how to build a hydroponic system to grow plants, herbs, or vegetables in your apartment, using IKEA components. This looks like an awesome project, one that we can totally get behind. Jump over to Indiegogo to help make it a reality here.

In this CreativeMornings/Porland talk, the charismatic radio-talk show host Julie Sabatier of Destination DIY speaks on the effort behind each of her episodes. Unlike other DIY shows, Destination DIY doesn’t offer a step-by-step tutorial for conquering individual projects, rather, Julie works to inspire others to “do it themselves” through insightful and thought-provoking stories told during her 59 minute broadcast. If you’ve ever been interested in radio broadcasting or had a little DIY-fever, check out this talk.
