With lots of attitude, passion and love we as 12min.me organize regular events in your city - on a range of relevant and cutting-edge topics. We create a platform to educate, to develop new ideas and to connect you with fellow 12minuters without the hassle and bureaucracy of formal business clubs. Our events run on our signature 12 minutes me beat - and the clock knows no mercy!

Three speaker in each event get exactly 12 minutes to captivate and inspire you with their topic and to get their key learnings across.

12min.me is burning hot

More than 2000 speakers have rocked a 12min.me stage since the first event in 2014. 12min.me has become the fastest growing meetup outside the United States. By now, our events are hosted in 35 cities across 7 countries on a regular basis and on a broad variety of topics.

Don't waste your time!

In today's professional life, the border between work and spare time is continually blurring. Times have seemingly become faster and more restless. Today's trend may be obsolete tomorrow. New concepts and innovations come and go at a brisk pace - making life-long learning not only a buzz word, but reality.

Since these developments impact your private life and time as well, it is our aim to help you make the most of your precious time. Whenever you learn something new, meet an interesting person or make new friends at one of our events and value that experience, we have reached our goal.
