Who are you and what do you do?
I am a 37-year-old entrepreneur, father and “expat” from Germany. I am working on building a revolutionary type of energy supply company that puts people truly in touch with the energy supply from nature (and saves them money at the same time).

What are your favorite books and hobbies?
“Blackout” and “Zero” by Marc Elsberg (technology can achieve wonderful things, but we also need the people who point out how it can be abused); I used to do a lot of sports but now see above (entrepreneur and father instead 😉

One thing I like about the Impact Hub Vienna?:
The openly designed space – it makes it so much easier to start talking to people
