"Give a man a fish, and you have fed him for a day; teach a man how to fish, and you have fed him for a lifetime."
Long-time OpenIDEO user, once Atrocities Prevention Challenge Community Champion.
Currently building a social impact consulting service in Germany, trying to strengthen the local startup ecosystem in Düsseldorf with StartupDorf, being a community mentor in a MOOC called Beyond Silicon Valley. But most of all, a very proud dad.
"“Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”"
As a researcher, I am interested in collaboration, socio-material practices, culture and space. I teach design thinking, organizational behavior and qualitative methods. I discovered OpenIDEO as I started working in fall 2010 on a research project on open innovation and since then have participated in multiple challenges, and keep coming back!
