A successful business starts with the entrepreneur!

CV & Awards


As scientist and entrepreneur it is important to me to use my knowledge, experience and network for supporting entrepreneurs worldwide as much as I can.

Consultancy & soundboard sessions

Sometimes there is a desire to have an expert in the field of entrepreneurship at the table. I can discuss about new ideas, we can exchange knowledge and experiences, and I can connect you with people in my network.

Presentations & workshops

I do not only develop specific trainings, but I also implement these across the globe where I work for companies, public sector, and educational institutions. Besides, you can encounter me when I give presentations and workshops at many different events.


Entrepreneurs, companies, educational institutions, governments, policy makers, NGOs and many other people and organizations can use the valuable data from research.
