1. Please briefly introduce yourself and your current job.
I research and teach entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystems.
2. How did you get involved in entrepreneurship?
I first declined venture funding during my MSc and then went on to build a mobile telecom operator.
3. What tip would you give to students who are enthusiastic about founding a company, who are currently thinking about founding a company or who have already taken the first steps towards self-employment?
Always keep scalability in mind! The step from the "garage" to a full-fledged company is where many good ventures get stuck.
