12-Week Bootcamp: Thrive as an Entrepreneurial Thinker & Doer

For many years I have been intensively engaged in entrepreneurial thinking and doing, as professor of entrepreneurship & innovation, as founder and as startup coach. In this 12-week bootcamp, I condense my many years of theoretical and practical knowledge into six relevant building blocks for identifying and realizing business ideas.

The Boot Camp is an intensive experience with a steep learning curve... contact me to learn more!

Content Channels

I publish partially different contents on the various channels. In this respect it is worthwhile to follow me on several channels. Below you find an overview of my most important channels.

Linkedin

On Linkedin I publish 3-5 posts a week on topics I find relevant (e.g. own thoughts, observations, articles worth reading) + topic discussion

Twitter

On Twitter I publish 10+ tweets per week, do retweets of content from thought leaders and also post fun stuff (memes etc.)

Instagram

On Instagram I publish 5-10 posts / stories a week, also on non-business topics (food, travelling, conferences, university)

Newsletter

On UpgradeSpace.io I publish a weekly newsletter with my most important thought of that week (described in more detail)

Individual Coaching

I coach future founders, entrepreneurs, startup-teams and managers.

The individual coaching offers a close 1on1 collaboration with me.

One-Time Coaching / Exchange of Thoughts

For future founders, entrepreneurs or managers who would like to discuss their business idea or selected topics with me, I offer a one-time coaching session. This service costs 500,- Euro net. The time scope of this coaching session is up to two hours.

Continuous Coaching Process

For many years I have been intensively engaged in entrepreneurial thinking and doing, as a professor, as an entrepreneur and as a startup coach. In my coaching sessions, I condense my many years of theoretical and practical knowledge in helpful advice for future founders, entrepreneurs and managers. In this one-on-one coaching, we define topics and then work on them in one- to two-week sprints. Due to time constraints, the number of participants for this continuous coaching is very limited. The price of the coaching depends on its duration. If you are interested in coaching, let's talk and see if and how I can help you.
