Konrad is a straight forward, yet creative entrepreneur. After studying social sciences with a focus on urban sociology, Konrad Lauten was a user and designer of urban open spaces in Berlin in the 90s and 00s. As a product developer for unusual drinks as well as a trader of ethnobotanical plants, record label and bar operator he dealt with alternative financing possibilities. After an intense time as a catering and bar employee of bar25 in Berlin, he used his experiences to transfer them to online fundraising, marketing and consulting services. In early 2010, he founded Inkubato Crowdfunding and has since been active with the agency "Get your Crowd" in project consulting and project development for crowdinvesting and crowdfunding. He is particularly interested in crowdfunding specialization opportunities in the food/beverage and film and agribusiness sectors.
