Passion Entrepreneurship

My passion is entrepreneurship – since 20 years. I worked in startups, (co-)started 7 companies myself and teach entrepreneurship at the HWR  Berlin since 2001. As an Entrepreneurship educator I am fascinated by the dynamics of innovation, personal growth and leadership – and by the fact that I learn  something new every day. Here is my CV.
