Why I do what I do, and how can it benefit you? 


During my corporate career - and now as an entrepreneur - I have helped many people to innovate and reach business success. One of the main reasons I decided to start my own business has been my strong passion for innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship. I see my work as the best way to help my clients.

Once we get to meet in person or on the phone, you will realize that innovating means fun and passionate work to me. I am curious about innovative products and services, novel technologies, and new approaches businesses can be run. I like to understand the underlying reasons why things are designed and done as they are. Does a product or service fulfill all the known and hidden needs of customers? Does it create enthusiasm and exceed the customer's expectations? Is it significantly beneficial, profitable, and sustainable?


I have always been a creative and visionary, sometimes critical, and a bit contrarian thinker. My creativity is a blessing as ideas come to my mind almost effortlessly - more than I can try out and will ever be able to realize! The visionary and critical part has allowed me to foresee market and business disruptions at the early stages that seemed to be invisible for so many people at that particular time. On the one hand, these insights can create opportunities for disruptive innovators. On the other hand, they can endanger established players in the markets if they hesitate to take action.  


Our today's modern lives are shaped by technology in numerous ways. Technology has been a significant driver of change in the 20th and 21st centuries. The velocity of change has increased in recent years. This trend seems to continue in the foreseeable future, which makes sense as many technological developments happen o an exponential pace. I have always had some innate understanding of various topics in technology and natural sciences. This ability might be the reason why I am a valuable partner for technology innovation. 


My creative mind likes taking a fresh perspective and creating ideas. 


I enjoy creating new products, or taking the old versions and improving them, putting a methodology in place, designing a new process, and seeing it all working. It makes me happy and has become an essential part of my life. Because it comes so naturally to me, I realized that only a few people read as much or get to understand technical issues as quickly as I do. It made sense to me to offer my services and learn even more from different organizations and industries. 


When the best ideas are brought to life, it can have a massive positive impact. They could mean the difference between death, survival, or having a thriving business. Side implications could be to either having to employ or fire good people. Consider the positive and negative news and views this can generate in public for a company and its leaders.


Needless to say that this has created countless opportunities for myself and the business leaders that worked with me. 

Innovation means change. Change means opportunity.


Change is scary for many people and difficult for companies. But history has shown over and over again that these times hold great opportunities for visionary and courageous innovators. I am convinced that we do live in the most exciting period of humanity. We face both severe challenges and outstanding opportunities. Innovation is a risky and rewarding path.

It takes courage, creativity, and expertise to initiate and drive changes to shape our future. You should not walk this path alone nor depend on mediocre people. Get in touch with me today to discuss your needs and desires and find out how I can help you to reach your goals.
