Key Accomplishments

I am an entrepreneur at heart and a serial entrepreneur since I was 16. I am active in a wide range of sectors that gives me variety and allows me to leverage one of my best skills, which is to connect the dots for ideas that are not close or obvious.

I am also involved in getting start-up communities going, especially in London and now in Zurich. I am always looking to share ideas with other people to develop these and get stuff out that truly changes peoples and companies' lives.

I have also helped set up the innovation program within the world's second largest reinsurer, advised on investing in some start-ups and have launched several start-ups myself.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I have so much energy and ideas and am always on the lookout for people who are enthusiastic about great ideas and making them happen. I love to collaborate on ideas and see them develop into something tangible and sustainable.

As an Advisor

I am all about sharing and collaborating. I want to help others succeed and avoid making the same mistakes and face the same challenges as others.

I am willing to share my vast network in the insurance industry, VC and investment industry and the start-up community (UK, Switzerland and US)
