Thousand Black PopLock Bicycle Helmet

Making cycling stylish is no mean feat, mainly because 90 per cent of the time you’re dressed up like a Lycra-clad condom. But at least LA-based brand Thousand is making bonces better-looking with its range of vintage-inspired helmets.

Available at Bear & Bear, priced £85.

G-Star 3301 Tapered Jeans

As a forward-thinking men’s publication, we loathe to say anything that sounds like it belongs in a nineties lad’s mag. But when it comes to denim, as is the case with these light wash jeans from G-Star, we say let’s get battered.

Available at G-Star, priced £120.

Adidas Originals NMD_CS2 Primeknit

In 2015, between pumping out new versions of the Ultra Boost and working with some guy called Kanye, Adidas found time to invent the NMD. The Primeknit kick has been a best-seller ever since, and it’s easy to see why with new iterations like this all-over striped version.

Available at Adidas, priced £129.95.

Soulland Shami T-Shirt

A lot of times fashion is about buying things you don’t need. So shout out to Danish brand Soulland for labelling this white cotton T-shirt exactly what it is and making the world’s ugliest font – Comic Sans – kind of, well, cool.

Available at FarFetch, priced £51.

Thomas Pink Gainborough Geo Pocket Square

Available at Thomas Pink, priced £35.

Gloverall Monty Summer Duffle

There’s an old saying about Britain that if you don’t like the weather, just wait a few minutes. At no other time is this truer than during spring. Luckily, duffle coat specialist Gloverall has produced a lightweight, unlined summer version of its staple coat. So you don’t have to worry about getting soaked (by sweat or showers).

Available at Gloverall, priced £225.

Graffiti on Berlin Wall, Berlin, GermanyTechCrunch Disrupt Berlin, our premier European event is fast approaching this December. And that means some of the top players from Silicon Valley will be coming over.
In this context, we are always interested in the experiences of European entrepreneurs who have made the transition from a successful European startup to joining the ecosystem in Silicon Valley. So we’re delighted to announce two new speakers for the conference who have been through that very journey. And not only that, one ended up investing in the other, making for an even more fascinating conversation.Andy McLoughlin

Timo Rein
Co-founder/CEO
Pipedrive

Timo Rein, co-founder and CEO of Pipedrive an activity-based simple sales management tool that helps over 60,000 sales teams to get more organised and focused, has 15+ years of experience as a salesman, sales manager and software entrepreneur. Timo is passionate about sales tactics and has always had a knack for reading people.

As CEO, Timo is responsible for setting long-term product vision and business-critical strategy goals. While Pipedrive has grown to over 300 employees working from different locations in New York, Lisbon, London and Estonia, Timo is still closely involved in the hiring process of new people and helps to find the best possible professional and personal fit between the new employee, the job or the rest of the team.

Prior to founding Pipedrive Timo worked for eleven years as one of the three partners at Vain & Partners, a sales consulting and training company with clientele like PwC, Coca Cola and Nissan. Timo’s goal was to create programs that would help different companies and people sell more, and manage better. Timo worked with about 30-40 companies, and 500 people each year to figure out ways to better sales results in different industries.

Timo also considers selling books door-to-door for 3 months in 2000 (in California, US) with Southwestern Comp, crucial to his sales experience that was eventually put to use as the architecture of Pipedrive. He was in top 1% performers among 4,000 sales people and while he never thought he was the type of person who could sell, he pulled off 14-hour-long days, 6 days a week, and 12 weeks in a row.

Timo’s first full-time job as a university student was a recruiter when he worked for four years interviewing people applying for managerial and specialist positions in different companies. Timo studied psychology at Tartu University and completed his BA studies in 1999.

Mr Obinna Ugwuoke, from Ebonyi state, and his wife Mrs Amarachi Ugwoke welcomed their sons at First Covenant Hospital in Satellite Town, Lagos on the 8th of May 2 017. The couple, who have two other children, were shocked when they saw that their sons were joined at the stomach and it took a toll on the husband.

The boys have four separate legs, two separate heads, and four hands but are fused from the chest down to the stomach. They have been named James and John.
