For 10+ years I have been helping startups to grow through customer-oriented product management, a modern leadership style, and distinct tech know-how.
After my studies I stumbled into product management, similarly I found myself by coincidence in my first management role as CPO and CTO. While my career journey sometimes felt random in the specific moment, I had frameworks and principles in place that helped me navigate to where I am today. I was also thankful to work with and learn from inspiring startup founders and management peers.
I saw first-hand what it means for a startup to grow from just a few employees to several hundred, and the strong impact venture capital funding and the management has on the startup. I gained experience in hiring and coaching teams of product managers, engineers, and designers. I learned how crucial it is for the further growth of the company to build a strong tech foundation from day 1 and have the right management principles and company values in place.
Over the years I have been involved in more than 25 startup launches (in industries such as eCommerce, FinTech, Digital Health), some being my own side-hustles. I gained unique insights into different business models, what worked and what did not, as well as frameworks and methodologies that could make the difficult early startup process more efficient.
Now I want to help you as a product leader or startup founder to benefit from my experiences in product leadership roles and startups.
