ENTREPRENEUR

I am founder and mentor to several technology companies where I create and execute ideas for maximum effect and oversee implementation via the strengths of my network.  We strive for constant improvement and to outperform each of our previous achievements.  Dedicated to collaboration and driven by curiosity, I tackle complexity by melding technology, politics, economics, and sociology.

It all started over a cup of tea - when my neighbor sought advice for his agency.

'You are a smart and innovative guy, maybe you can think of a solution for this?' - Anton Salzer

A neighbor approached me, asking for advice concerning the agency he was working for. We enjoyed a cup of tea listening to his explanations. I noticed that current digitalization is creating more complexity and frustration rather than easing workflow while creating additional revenue. I sketched the architecture for a new system that was able to meet all of these requirements. The very next week I founded my first company, recruited a talented team and implemented the new system for his agency.

I continued to develop companies within various industries. They continuously advance in their specific domain, while complementing each other to drive holistic solutions. I have also worked with international and global corporations, taking responsibility of driving strategic projects and programs.

Those companies cover a wide range of technologies, both hard and software related. I am proud of our portfolio covering IoT (Internet of Things), Safety and Security, Smart Data (reaping benefits from Big Data), BlockChain technology, Virtual Reality, ... as well as expertise in ADAS (advanced driving assistance systems), Car2Car/Car2X/V2X, GSM, LTE,... and conducting research in advanced decentralized and resilient network infrastructures. We also develop products for consumer electronics and industrial services. I keep busy in each of these segments serving with my profound experience and strategic advice.

How Nation States Can Build A Viable World For 11 Billion People

Earth is currently accommodating about 7 billion people. Caused by our habits and living, we would need two of them to remain in balance. The United Nations predict humanity to grow up to 11 billion people in 2100. Therefore, it is time to reconsider our habits, alliances and politics. Why is it so difficult to promote long term objectives and adjust governance to safeguard our survival and foster long term prosperity?

Challenged during an international authorship meeting in 2015, I was invited to analyze current shortcomings and rethink our current mechanisms of national and international politics and society. Written by Gerhard Knies, Lars Holger Engelhard and Stefanie A. Engelhard, with input from Hans Blauel, Jürgen Scheffran and Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, we present our thoughts on a new world that could accommodate human mankind and ensure prosperity. Our approach is to introduce mechanisms to foster long term thinking and respect interdependencies between nations. Viable World Network Design invites for open collaboration to develop our initial ideas.

In 2015, I was invited by Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, Co-Chair of the Club of Rome, to join ‘Come On!’. This project brings together a wide-range of Club of Rome thinking to show what can be done to develop a more sustainable world. Ernst knew about my various studies and my efforts to interlink technology, politics, economics and sociology. I became an author for the international Club of Rome.
Members are optimistic that fabulous opportunities exist to guide the world towards sustainable prosperity. So am I. In my previous academics and business profession, I observed various notable changes in our society. Our conclusion is that we need to develop a new Enlightenment that can profoundly transform the philosophical basis of society.
