Entrepreneur. Founder of Qype.com, 9flats.com, avocadostore.de Aspiring minimalist. Proud European. Learning investor. Believer in experience sharing.
In my business life, I try to simplify my key activities:
Entrepreneur: I build companies. I pursue the luxury of only doing things that make sense to me. Making sense can mean making life easier for people like Qype.com or thinking about intelligent consumption like Avocadostore.de, the largest marketplace for eco friendly goods in Germany. 9flats.com is Europe’s best peer-to-peer accommodation website, enabling less consumption and more sharing.
Investor: I love investing. However I am pretty conservative and try to follow Buffet’s rule number one: “Don’t lose money”. This makes me not an ideal angel investor, as I am convinced the only way not to lose money in angel investments is having way more money to invest than I can allocate to this
