BubbleConf: One day of ideas and action with the most vocal minds from tech, design, UX and business.

BubbleConf is a conference for today’s tech startups on design, development and entrepreneurship by Nedap and Phusion. We aim to bring together developers, designers and entrepreneurs from all over Europe to share their knowledge and war stories with one another. With about 400 attendees last year, we hope to see you at this year’s edition in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam on September 27th!

With only about 4 weeks left until BubbleConf takes place, it’s time to announce the final speaker of our already amazing lineup! This week, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be having David Noël over from SoundCloud.

SoundCloud, launched in 2008 is the leading audio platform that gives users unprecedented access to the world’s largest community of music and audio creators. David played an instrumental part in the growth of SoundCloud and that’s also going to be the topic of his talk: Growth.

Growth is a dynamic moment in a start-up’s lifecycle that seems to never stop once it starts. First million users? Check. Constant flow of new team members? Check. Downtimes? Check. Culture? Check. Going global? Check. This session will explore the untold stories about growth at SoundCloud – ranging from product to community to the company. It will explore the delicate balance of implementing structure in a startup without losing the core motivations that initially propelled SoundCloud to become the world’s leading audio platform to iterating on our products while listening to the feedback from our community of creators to ensuring every new employee feels welcomed and aligned across multiple timezones.
