How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I have a very open minded approach.
I have lot of experience at the same time I know that things which worked in the past don't necessarily still work the same way.
I give therefore my suggestions and the reasoning behind it but I don#t feel hurt if those are not followed. In the end the founders have the responsibility.

And I'm just enthusiastic to help young companies getting off the ground or getting better where they are.
Expect me to be critical and edgy, as being nice and telling just the good things won't bring the company forward.
