From idea to innovation
There were many companies I launched in my life. My first one was started when I was 13 years old and I was able to sell and gave me a good start for my entrepreneurial life. After two failed attempts to raise a start-up with my own resources and knowledge I realized how important it was to have a good basis and a strong team to proceed faster and more efficient.
All this lead to a creation of my own basis with the 361 group where I built my own start-up incubator to accelerate my ideas from programming, marketing and also business side. With great people working together in many of these start-up projects we were able to launch different projects and grow them. Some of them were not so successful as expected, so we focused on the most promising start-up in our own incubator.
As a constant start-up-like thinking entrepreneur, I also encourage people to stay agile and to on their dreams. Usually just 1 out of 10 start-ups survive and are successful. Lucky me I can say that my quote is better than this but I also know how hard it can be to “kill your baby” and to start over again with a new project. This is why I also help a lot of companies in their on innovation challenge, give keynotes about new business and start-up mentality but also support start-ups as a mentor and supporter in several ways.
