"Everyone should look for good partnerships because people are always scared to share their ideas, which should change."

Who are you?

Why do I do what I’m doing? Because, it feels good to surrender to my inner curiosity and do things differently. I feel an urge to challenge the world and people around me and give other people the possibility to do the same. To make this happen, we need a more sustainable society in every single way and that is exactly what I’m striving for on a daily basis. The goal is to work on a better future together with motivated people and if one day we have the chance to carry out that message I would be a very happy man!

Why are you part of Generation T?

I’m very open to new ideas in different areas and motivated to make them work and get them out there. I love to research a certain subject in depth and communicate my findings, which is why I started a PhD when I finished studying. Every idea or product needs to fit into the bigger picture and be a part of an inspiring story. Everyone should look for good partnerships because people are always scared to share their ideas, which should change.

A specific example on how your project or activities make a difference and initiate change:

I want to lead by example. We need to start doing things differently and a person is a good place to start. I want to be critical about myself and invite people to say what they think about my ideas. Get it out there and spread the word so people can react. This interaction is paramount to make something work and create a good, interesting idea. At 21 I started my first company namely Bubble Taxi (now known as Bubble Post). Currently I am working on my new startup Jaswig. That provides people the possibility to learn and work in a dynamic environment.
