Entrepreneur and Comedian
ETH is my Alma Mater and always ready for a surprise. I studied at ETH Zurich and I love working with start-ups, obviously also ETH spin-offs. The technologies and solutions they develop are unique. The greatest challenge, however, mostly is to apply their technology so that it solves a real-world problem. Let’s not forget: the goal should be that customers love their product. I believe that entrepreneurship is a great alternative for students with a vision and drive. Fostering this talent needs to be promoted. ETH is the perfect place for that.
Even realistically with baby steps, if anyhow possible, I would like to contribute to helping solve challenges like waste-disposal, antibiotic resistance, or global warming. These issues are so complex, they really need the attention of the best minds worldwide and ETH Zurich has many of them.
I would like to provide the Circle with both further network and learnings, working in the fast and ever-changing entertainment industry for the past decade. To share my insights with start-ups, which I had the privilege to gather as a co-founder of Swiss Healthcare Start-ups and as a start-up advisor and to convey my passion for tech and innovation. And let’s not forget humour. It is an enormously powerful tool. I so far haven’t had any complaints after delivering a decent punchline.
What do I expect from the ETH Circle? Clearly, to always start with a great meal! I want to have direct access to a great and vibrant community! Fostering such spirit, however, is in our own hands. To be inspired by every individual, their life stories, background, point of view and drive. And, of course, to be surprised and challenged.
