WHO AM I?
I am from Germany but “the world is my home”. I am a multi-faceted passionate traveler full of ideas, energy, and dreams. I have lived on five continents as a student, entrepreneur, feminist, and dreamer, and get excited about meeting inspiring people, working in start-ups and with entrepreneurs, giving back to the community, taking risks, empowering others to fulfill their potential, and embarking on a journey to myself.
I had to be woken up by tuberculosis to put in perspective what really counts in life and to not take everything for granted. I left my job at Montblanc, volunteered in Colombia and Namibia, worked for the United Nations, returned back to university for my MBA, and jumped into the start-up world.
My motto: Some people dream it - I do it.
At the beginning of this year, I joined a Swedish start-up as CMO in Silicon Valley, the world's greatest and most powerful start-up area.
As I pursued my MBA in Strategic Entrepreneurship, I was awarded Rising Star. I was also awarded for my Master's thesis about collective leadership and I attend online courses at Stanford University.
As a mentor, consultant and freelancer, I support entrepreneurs and start-ups on creating the next big thing.
Recently, I became a Board Member at BAMA, an NGO in Uganda supporting mothers and children.
MY LATEST PASSION PROJECTS
"What's meant to be will always find its way." But sometimes, we need a little guidance along the way. Meant To Be will be your new favourite journal: a unique mix of journaling prompts, short stories and artwork. What started as a fun idea during a life-changing trip to Lapland, turned into a bucket list activity. This book features female artists from around the world and is available on www.meanttobejournal and selected partners.
We all want change and a better future - but the ACTUAL change doesn't happen by politicians, but changemakers in local communities. We're on a mission to mentor/consult/guide women changemakers and local NGOs, decreasing their gap with politicians, and helping them build skills and confidence to maximize their impact and change. My team is experienced in fundraising, marketing, go-to-market and growth strategies.
I joined BAMA (Babies and Mothers Alive) as a Board Member. Our team implements innovative programs transforming the quality of maternal, reproductive, newborn, child, and adolescent health care in partnership with the Government of Uganda. Over the past six years, institutional maternal & perinatal mortality was reduced by 72% and 44% respectively. I'll soon visit the local team and support on-site.
