Serial entrepreneur / social impact / angel investor / innovation coach / Querdenker ;-)
I love two things: I'm passionate about innovation and I really enjoy working with ambitious and creative minds, which made me a serial entrepreneur and company builder: Global Venture Partners, Overture (sold to Yahoo! for $1.6 bn), GameGenetics, Bjooli, SirPlus, Rehago, SPRK.global. My passion lies in value creation and impact, always looking to work in tandemwith driven individuals. Actually my strongest motivation: teaming up with founders and out-of-the box thinking innovators, to build iconic ventures.
After a cancer misdiagnosis in 2014 and fully recovery, I like to channel my energy into things that really move the needle. Focus: social impact and better lifestyles.
Sparring partner of NGOs and corporate executives, e.g. Samsung, VW/Volkswagen, Deutsche Post/DHL, Daimler, Alba, Deutsche Bahn as well as the City of Berlin and United Nations, helping themexecute their initiatives.
A bit of a gypsy: raised in Meerbusch/Germany, high school in Hong Kong, studies in the USA (MBA Wharton & MA/Lauder, UPenn), worked in the UK .. with new roots in Berlin/Germany since 2006.
I value trust, reliability & integrity. Proud daddy & sports lover.
