Mission & Purpose

We face many challenges in our world from climate, macroeconomics and the divide of our society as a whole.

People need to be educated and empowered to be able to adapt to various challenges and opportunities. This is where my „Why“ comes in: I am an evangelist for entrepreneurship culture & beyond. I educate & coach entrepreneurs because I believe that relevant change comes from a deep self-understanding of what sustainable entrepreneurship means.

Empowering today’s Entrepreneurs with Capital, Industry Access is at the core of my work.

I invest because Capital needs to be re-navigated to fuel innovation. Furthermore capital is the most fluid asset and a great way how incumbent resources can support new innovations and ambitious entrepreneurs. To me this is the “Generationenvertrag”

I connect unique resources such as Industry Access, Innovation, Capital for research & Science to direct them to entrepreneurial activities.

Finding and matching Resources in a new and mission driven order is my main ambition, by growing people & companies
