What will you learn

Get ready when Nanna Munkholm and Mathias Grønne go on stage to talk about the creation of startups and how to build your tech along the way!

Nanna Munkholm is the founder and CTO of Roccai, and Mathias Grønne is their Head of AI. Roccai rethinks online decision-making by combining visual trends from social media with AI to introduce an interactive recommendation engine for eCommerce.

Nanna Munkholm will talk about how she and her co-founders built the company and developed the tech — a startup journey filled with many pitfalls for a technical founder. Mathias joined Roccai after the prototype had been tested on customers, and it was time to take Roccai's technology and AI to the next level. He will talk about building AI for startups, why it is essential to implement it in steps rather than in one go, and how this has been achieved in Roccai.
