For me as a professor of entrepreneurship real world experience is of crucial importance. My observation in the day to day work with startup entrepreneurs helps me to define research questions and develop teaching concepts.

In 2007 I founded Daring Spirit UG, a company that supports startups and SME with angel investments and coaching. With DSUG I was part of allmaxx, bravis, PaperC and Uniturm. I am happy to work with companies (e. g. lead workshops) or give key notes (e. g. Startup Camp, Funkausstellung, Deutscher Entrepreneurship Education Campus). In the past I was fortunate to work with Deutsche Bahn, KPMG, Teekampagne, and de Gruyter.
