The Full Story
My passion is to support startups in the early and growth phase. I believe that blockchain technology and AI is going to disrupt the way we do business today. I worked for 17 years for corporates before becoming an entrepreneur in 2011. During the past ten years, I have advised over a hundred start-ups. In 2015 I co-founded Accelerator Frankfurt, an acceleration program, that focuses on early-stage fintech and blockchain companies.
I do executive coaching for startup founders and executive women using a clinical approach. The goal is to motivate them change their behaviour and become more effective leaders. Change requires right mindset in addition to hard work to lead to long lasting results.
I believe that the best way to change things is to show up and get things done. I was nominated in 2017 and 2018 the leading FinTech Influencer in the German-speaking world. From 2019 to 2022 I have been elected as one of the EU's top 50 influential women in Startups and VC's.
As a learning freak I have three Master degrees: MSc. in Process Engineering from Åbo Akademi, MBA in international management from Purdue & ESCP and Executive Master from INSEAD.
