Mental strength and technology – the way to the TOP?
How 2 tennis professionals turned their nervousness into motivation.

Being nervous is inevitable in sports. However, too much nervousness can ruin not only one game but an entire career as well. In this edition of Laptop & Leibchen, we will discuss the impact of technology and mental coaching on success in sports and business.

Join us for a panel discussion with former tennis pros Bernd Karbacher and Maik Burlage.

Bernd Karbacher was a tennis pro from 1988 until 2000 with an ATP singles ranking of World No. 22. He has experienced a combination of both successes and failures – experiencing moments throughout his career dominated by unhealthy and paralysing nervousness. But eventually, he managed to beat legends like Boris Becker. Today, he is motivated to assist managers and athletes to become successful by sharing experiences and insights from his professional career.

Former tennis pro Maik Burlage is in the process of revolutionizing amateur tennis through his startup Wingfield, which recently received 1,2-million-dollar funding from adidas (and others). Maik and his co-founders have developed a hardware-supported technology that turns any ash or hard court into a smart playing surface in seconds – all you need is a box and an app. He will share his insights on the power of technology for success.

We are thrilled to welcome these two professionals to TechQuartier and learn more about how their nerve-wracking experiences as tennis pros helped them grow into better athletes and businessmen.
