Conny Marx is a passionate entrepreneur and burns for innovative ideas that have an impact. But in her start-up story, she was also able to collect a lot of negative experiences that almost broke her. She had to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting the wall and did a complete restart in 2022. And this time on the premise that she has fun with her projects.
So far, this has resulted in two new fantastic projects that she is again passionate about Her WoW Club and The Healthy Startup.
She continues to burn for startups that meet the problems of our time with innovative ideas. Above all, she supports women who want to make a real impact with their projects and who want to start a business. She networks and connects women because this creates new and creative ideas.
She took so much with her from her startup foundation that she can now pass on to support other founders to build healthy companies and take care of themselves. Her personal story and her experiences as inspirations.
Skinnovation is about Skiing, Innovation & Entrepreneurship. As the name already tells, Skinnovation combines skiing and innovation. During Skinnovation startups, investors, innovative corporates and entrepreneurship enthusiasts meet up to ski together, attend talks in ski huts, and pitch in the ski lift.
Skinnovation provides an extraordinary setting to work on exceptional ideas. They believe that great ideas are not born in closed rooms, but when being outside and on the move. Therefore, skiing (snowboarding actually works as well) is the perfect sport because it combines speed, freedom, and accidental meetups in the lift. That’s how future ideas are created.
