“Whoever does what he already can, always remains what he already is.”
Passion and curiosity motivate me every day in my task to bring scientific knowledge into the working world and build a digital movement in Germany that makes Germany and Europe competitive again.
As CEO of Factory Berlin, I have been responsible for a unique international team, national and international expansion and the development of a digital network for the last four years. ”Coworking, community and creativity“ have always been strategic pillars of the hub and me personally. The quality of the 5,000 member community is proof that it works.
I was born on the largest and most beautiful island of Germany, Rugia Island, in 1998 I left my home, because I saw no perspective for myself. Now, in 2022, I will return to my home country. With the establishment of HEROFOUNDERS and a complementary team, I want to take responsibility in the design of the federal state. The next generation of school leavers should not leave Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, but start founding courageously.

“I would like to see more awareness of the fact that curiosity, courage, entrepreneurial spirit, self-realization, error handling culture and interdisciplinary networking are the drive for any progress.”
Trying new things, pushing ideas and projects has always been my motivation. I was born and raised in Waren (Müritz) and have been an entrepreneur and media maker since I was 16. After studying business administration with a focus on business psychology, I co-founded the H2F communication agency in 2006 and designed nationwide campaigns in securing qualified employees, location development, education and digitalization.
My experience from many years of communication consulting and project business was then bundled in 2018 in the development of inVENTURE Ltd, which as an operational investment company actively founded and built up innovative companies in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania with expertise, network and capital.
My main concern is to inspire other people for a future in the Baltic Sea Region by networking them in the region and encouraging them to take new paths in an environment of innovative, digital business models.
In order to support the regional startup ecosystem and to strengthen our state as an ideal location for startups, innovation and digital value creation, I now bundle all experiences of my previous life, professional and network stations in the co-founding and management of HEROFOUNDERS.

“I want to give innovative and sustainable founders a space for their ideas, courage and passion. HEROFOUNDERS will be the innovation hub in the Baltic Sea region, where smart minds and talents will find network and space to develop and make the north not only more liveable, but also more innovative.“
Already at the age of 15 I discovered the passion for entrepreneurship thanks to my brother. At that time, I was allowed to become part of his foundation and later on the development of other topics such as online shops etc. My personal and professional focus has always been on making a contribution to making the world a greener, smarter and fairer place.
In 2020, together with our co-founder Toni Project Bay, I started the first co-working space with sea access on Rugia Island and in Germany. In the meantime, we have become a regional developer, with co-working / workation / sharing offers, educational concepts for students, digitization concepts for rural areas up to new co-living and living concepts.
In Europe, we are one of the best-known locations today and are also requested internationally as regional developers. With the pandemic, all the cards have been reshuffled and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern can be the country of the future, of which I am convinced as the co-founder of HEROFOUNDERS.
