What inspires you?

Working on frontier technology with inspirational founders who are smarter than me and who find solutions for problems I didn’t know existed.

What excites you about the next decade?

There are a few things I am particularly excited about: Seeing people across the world become connected more closely via platforms and AI. Solving problems for which we do not yet have answers. Helping businesses 10X their efficiency (got to love that as a German). Europe becoming the hub for budding tech entrepreneurs – with our firm’s contribution.

What would you tell an aspiring entrepreneur?

Go all-in or don’t go at all, seek support and buy-in from family and friends, and hire 10s.

Outside of work, where can you be found?

Up in the air – whether piloting a plane, flying model helicopters, or learning new jumps while kitesurfing.
