“With experience from both thestartup world and the world of large companies, I’ve gotten to where I am today.
My time as a multiple startup founder and as a C-level executive and consultant in small, medium and large companies has inspired me and is the foundation I build my knowledge on.
I have learned that my efforts – especially in large companies – have reached their limits sometimes.And again I have seen that,especially large companies,have difficulties developing at the speed of start-ups. They also don’t seem to care about disruption.But at some point it will affect everyone: “Disrupt or to be disrupted”.
From this experience, my passion has grown to connect these companies with the start-up know-how, culture, and accompany them on their way to sustainable growth.
Digitization, big data and artificial intelligence are already changing our world significantly today. According to the motto “The best way to predict the future is to create it” I am making companies even more successful with their products and services. I make employees even more committed, motivated and satisfied – and thus making the world an even better place”.
