Martin is a global startup advisor, angel investor, and Founder & CEO of Bell Ventures. He advises corporates, investors, governments, and start-ups. Additionally, he is a thought leader and a keynote speaker on the topic of company building within organizations.
He was previously the Chief architect of Rocket Internet's 100-day launch process, and helped build ~50 companies. He also shined as an interim executive in 5 companies (incl. Zalando, Delivery Hero, and Foodora).
"Most venture studios possess — at most! — 50% of the know-how contained in the Playbook. Due to the gigantic value packed into this startup manual, I told Martin that he can basically charge whatever he wants for the Playbook."
"Martin's Playbook helped us turn our own digital venture, which applies artificial intelligence and machine learning to deal advisory, into a success. The Playbook was an easy-to-follow instruction manual that explained many tasks that weren't even on our radar."
"The 100 Task Playbook (and all of its great templates, checklists, and videos) is a MUST-HAVE for anyone who wants a clear instruction manual on how to build a massively valuable company — as quickly as possible!"
“We were stuck and our revenue stagnated. Martin’s Playbook helped us to fundamentally rethink our business model. After some tough changes, we launched in 5 new markets within 2 months. Thank you, Martin!“
"The 100 Tasks got us to MVP at lightning speed and helped us clinch great investors! I'm also using the 100 Tasks to start two new projects. And I've been given a board position at another company. Thanks, Martin!"
Is the 100 Task Playbook for me?
If you want to build a company – then yes. The 100 Task Playbook is for founders, entrepreneurs, innovators, consultants, managers, corporations, and anyone who is involved in helping a new venture take off the ground (or has plans to do so). While previous founder experience will help you to put the 100 tasks in context, it is by no means a prerequisite to understand or implement the 100 Task process.
The opposite is true: additional resources like videos and ready-to-use Excel sheets will give you hands-on guidance to put the 100 Task process into practice from day 1.
Does the 100 Task Playbook apply to my particular business?
Yes. At Rocket Internet and Bell Ventures, Martin worked with B2C and B2B companies across all different types of industries and sectors. The 100 Tasks contain the strategies, best-practices, and specific tools that he used to make these ventures successful. The Playbook will enable you to apply these strategies and to adapt them to your particular venture and industry.
For instance, Martin worked more recently with companies in spaces such as E-Mobility, HealthTech, FinTech, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Blockchain, Internet-of-Things, e-Commerce, Food, and Logistics.
Isn’t starting a company in 100 Tasks a very ambitious plan?
Yes – but it works. The 100 Task Process has been proven and refined by Martin over the course of 9 years at Rocket Internet and Bell Ventures. During this time he used the knowledge in the Playbook to build approximately 100 companies: 50 at Rocket Internet and 50 at Bell Ventures. Many of these companies have become very successful, went public via an IPO and achieved unicorn status with a multi-billion valuation. Among them are for instance: Zalando, Delivery Hero, and Hello Fresh.
What will I learn in the videos?
In the three explanatory videos, Martin provides unique insights and real-life cases from his previous experience of building approximately 100 ventures with the 100 Task Launch Process. In the videos he highlights common mistakes in each of the tasks and give you further guidance on how to implement them most effectively. Each of the videos is approximately 20 minutes long.
How will I get access to the Playbook and videos?
After your purchase you will receive a confirmation e-mail with further instructions to get access to the cloud-based version of the 100 Task Playbook. Any future updates will be automatically reflected there.
"I’ve distilled all my venture building knowledge into a bulletproof system that allows ventures to launch in 100 days max! The 100 Tasks Playbook caters to founders, entrepreneurs, innovators, consultants, managers, intrapreneurs, and anyone who is involved in helping a new venture take off the ground (or has plans to do so!). I’ve worked on the Playbook for the past couple of years now and I'm absolutely ecstatic to finally be able to share this blueprint for success with the broader start-up community."
