Co-founder, Sport eXperience
Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained!

What makes my clock tick is exchanging experiences between business & sports – of course this is already depicted in many metaphors and valuable stories”. With Sport eXperience my other dream comes through and that’s where my expertise comes in: from my background I initiated and helped a wide range of start-ups and innovations successfully to come of age”.
