What is your job aside from supporting Startup Weekend?
Have you already participated in Startup Weekend? If not, why are you participating?
I participated in ‘Startup Weekend Education‘ Cologne as a coach and also in ‘Startup Weekend South West’ in Saarbrücken as a coach.
What was your motivation to support Startup Weekend?
I like to see new business models growing and I also like to help others creating new businesses. If I had this kind of help 10 years ago, maybe I could have prevented myself from many mistakes I’ve made in the past.
Do you personally profit from volunteering at Startup Weekend?
I met a lot of great and talented people at Startup Weekend so far. Eventhough I could see new ideas growing and this was always inspiring for me.
Do you have good advice for all future volunteers?
Stick to your idea and if you fail, just start from the beginning. Just do it!
