OR "NOW IT ALL MAKES SENSE"
BEYOND BRAND SCHOOL is my 5 year vision, of which MIND CULTURE is the first chapter. Join me on my mission to get more mindfulness in the digital innovation scene.
After 10+ years of trying out different industries, cities, and environments, I can humbly say: I found my calling.
I don't want to sugar coat it, the journey was not always a pretty road trip chill. I tried on quite a few shoes before I was able to find the one. But, don't get me wrong – I love every chapter of it.
Looking back on my first professional decade, I'm honored I was able to explore so many different industries and environments. I lived in Barcelona, Berlin, Cape Town, New York, Tokyo, Vienna, and Zurich – contributing my skills and talent in the creative, arts & culture, as well as tech-innovation scene.
I'm a certified Executive-Trainer, Life Coach, cosmopolitan, cheese lover, and passionate 80s-disco dancer. I'm in love with cultures and intersections, I find those the most exciting spots. Together with my husband, Tim, we live and work between Vienna and Cape Town.
I co-established and hosted the globally renowned and multi-awarded startup conference, called Pioneers Festival for its first 5 years, until 2016.
As Managing Director of the scaling events department I supported the internationalisation of the brand beyond Europe to Asia and especially to Tokyo/Japan – girl, what a ride.
In 2017, after too much brain drain and adapting it was time for a new chapter. Together with my now husband, Tim, we sold all our belongings, left our home base and decided to take a sabbatical.
With the laptop in one hand and a suitcase in the other we embarked upon a two-year journey, living in Barcelona, Cape Town, and Turin.
All these experiences accumulated in my bravest step yet – launching my own business. Seeing so (!) many driven professionals struggle with the same things over and over again, I took the decision to build something valuable for them.
We need a framework that serves us – That serves YOU. So this is it.
„I BELIEVE THE NEXT WAVE OF INNOVATION WILL NOT HAPPEN
ON A TECHNOLOGICAL LEVEL, BUT A MENTAL ONE.
ARE THE BIGGEST GLOBAL PROBLEMS WE ARE FACING.
AND THERE IS NO CODE THAT WILL FIX THAT.
WE NEED TO RE-PROGRAM OUR VALUES AND GOALS TO MAKE TRUE SENSE OF LIFE."

WHEN WORKING WITH ME,
YOU'RE NOT ONLY INVESTING IN Y O U R FUTURE ...
TO DEDICATE A PORTION OF MY PROFIT, EXPERTISE, AND TIME
TO PROJECTS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.
NOW LET ME INTRODUCE THE AFRICA-FOCUSED PROJECTS THAT WE ARE SUPPORTING TOGETHER.
DUE TO MY PERSONAL HISTORY, I'M ATTACHED TO EMPOWERING OTHERS TO GET (BACK) THE BLESSING OF SIGHT.
THE CHARITY LIGHT FOR THE WORLD IS SO DOWN TO EARTH AND HUMBLE, THEREFORE I KNOW THE MONEY GETS TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE WHO NEED IT MOST.
THE INITIATIVE VISION FOR AFRICA IS 30 YEARS IN THE MAKING, TURNING THE "STARTUP COUNTRY" UGANDA IN A ROLE MODEL COUNTRY FOR THE WHOLE CONTINENT.
I KNOW THE INITIATOR VERY WELL SO I'M 100% CONVINCED THAT OUR CONTRIBUTION IS IN VERY GOOD HANDS BUILDING A SELF-SUSTAINING, EDUCATED, EMPOWERED SOCIETY.
MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING. THAT'S WHY I AM MENTORING AND COACHING ENTREPRENEURS FROM SOUTH AFRICA NIGERIA, AND ZIMBABWE AT STARTUPBOOTCAMP AFRICA.
THEY PIONEERED STARTUP ACCELERATION ON THE CONTINENT AND I'M SO IMPRESSED ON THE FEMALE FOUNDER RATIO OF OVER 40%. THEY ARE SO GRATEFUL WHILE SOLVING REAL PROBLEMS, WHAT IS A BETTER CONTRIBUTION THAN THAT.
