A Personal Word

“With experience from both the startup 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 have inspired me and is the foundation I build my knowledge on.

As a serial entrepreneur with innovative ideas in different industries with financing from business angels, German venture capital companies, well-known Silicon Valley venture capital companies and strategic investors – as well as a consultant for smaller companies, I got to know the startup world.

As a C-level executive and as a consultant, I was also able to get to know the world of medium-sized and large companies as well as corporations in various countries of the world.

I have learned that large companies, in particular, have difficulties keeping up with the speed of start-ups. But disruption can affect any company – therefore my advice is: “Disrupt or be disrupted”.

From this experience, my passion has grown to connect these companies with the start-up know-how and culture – and accompany them on their way to sustainable growth.

Digitization, big data and artificial intelligence are already changing our world significantly today. In line with the motto “The best way to predict the future is to create it”, I give impulses in my lectures on how companies can become even more successful with their products and services, how employees can become even more committed, motivated and satisfied – and thus making the world an even better place.
