Hi, nice to meet you!

I am a communications professional and content strategist with a deep knowledge on and passion for digitization. I help people and organizations to do better business with better communications. I recently joined the Digital Team at Hering Schuppener as a Senior Advisor.

I am also a storyteller, keynote speaker and moderator, specialized in explaining how technology and digitization are shaping our future. I bring with me the experience of several years as a tech journalist: I have been the Editor-in-Chief and Head of WIRED Germany (2014-2018), the Editor-in-Chief of gruenderszene.de (2013-2014) and the founder of the business-startup-magazine Business Punk (2009-2018). I have been considered one of the most important startup journalists in Germany.Coming from this background plus having a strong entrepreneurial and strategic thinking I also support companies in developing their content strategy.

If you are interested in working with me: I am happy to help. Please send me an email to hi at nikolausr.de.

//Other projects:

I am the founder and moderator of the Wednestech.club, the leading community for digital leaders in Berlin, and the publisher of KI-Briefing.de, the soon to come weekly summary on the most important developments in artificial intelligence (in German: Künstliche Intelligenz, KI). Please subscribe here.

As an expert for the ZEIT Akademie I gave a lesson on the subject of digital trends as part of the Digital Leadership course (watch the trailer here).

I am honored to be a council member at the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), a jury member at the CEBIT Innovation Award, the Telekom Fashion Fusion Award and a mentor at the Lead Sports Accelerator.

My work experience includes the Financial Times Deutschland (2005 to 2012), jetzt.de (2002 to 2005), Yahoo Germany and sueddeutsche.de. I studied political science, macroeconomics and sociology in Munich (Germany) and Bradford (UK).

One of my personal goals I managed to achieve this year: I like running and finished my second half marathon.
