I help teams find a shared perspective, discover strategic potentials, commit to common goals – and translate them into viable and verifiable business and product strategies.
I help budding intrapreneurs understand their companies’ need for innovation, find possibilities for change, overcome obstacles, and kickstart innovative product development.
I read, write, talk and am passionate about topics ranging from product innovation to open societies, from science fiction to local production, from enology to epistemology.

Collaborative product design and development.
Based in Hamburg, mindmatters is developing digital products for startups and established companies since 2002, focusing on real user needs and complex problems.
In our projects, a team of 23 developers, designers and process facilitators helps our clients and partners create simple and sustainable solutions.
In our slacktime, we constantly rethink how that’s done best – and what makes work as gratifying as possible.
Hamburg’s first and premier coworking space.
Opened in 2010, the betahaus is Hamburg’s most important hub for founders, startups and etablished companies looking for fresh ideas and novel work environments.
It’s the shared office of over 400 users and hosts most of Hamburg’s startup- and founder-oriented events.
betahaus Hamburg has survived one insolvency, grown fivefold since then and revolutionized the coworking business model on the way.
A popup store for hyperlocal products.
The Zweimeilenladen sells only goods produced in a two-mile radius around its respective location – from food and beveridges to fashion and furniture.
Each time it pops up, it’s open for three weeks, up to now once in Hamburg and once in Berlin.
A cognitive medium for product innovation.
Creating and introducing new products is hard.

Evolved from my work on digital products at mindmatters, developed together with Klaus-Peter Frahm and Michael Schieben, and debuted at the Product Tank Hamburg in June 2015.
