Managing Director in Suisse
As the Managing Director of Fri Up, I help ideas becoming start-ups and start-ups taking off and flying.
Fri Up is the official support organization for business creations in the state of Fribourg (Switzerland). Its mission: to be the entry door for all new entrepreneurs who want to launch their start-up. As a non-profit organization, Fri Up welcomes projects from their very early stage and offers a free of charge, field-oriented and personalized support.
Prior to Fri Up, I acquired an extensive experience in developing and launching new consumer technology products and digital services. This very often resulted in the need to create innovative and disruptive solutions in a human-centered and field-oriented way, in the creation of new businesses and in start-ups acquisitions.
I use Design Thinking when I support start-ups and large organizations to develop new business ideas. I also give Design Thinking lectures in several executive MBA and Master programs in Switzerland.
Besides that, I initiated the TEDx conferences in Fribourg. These conferences gather every year participants around a group of speakers who present ideas, projects or unique achievements.
