Mario has been involved in startup activities by members from universities and research institutions for almost a decade. He developed and organized special trainings for future entrepreneurs with innovative ideas (e.g. workshops, lectures, certificate programs). Thus, Mario regularly experiences the innovative potential of students and scientists. Unfortunately, most of them do not dare to make their dreams and visions come true. Their excuses are almost the same: “I do not have the money” or “The risk is too high“. This is what he wants to change. Over time he came in contact with different processes and approaches and took part in workshops in Germany, the UK and in the United States. There, he realized that starting an innovative company is not necessarily associated with high risk and equity. In contrast, there is a wide variety of tools and measures to decrease risks systematically and drive customer discovery as well as product development.
Mario is passionate about enabling future entrepreneurs. He helps them to realize their dreams by building products and services customers really love and want. Thus, he decided to collaborate with Ronald (http://www.startupbootcamp.org/mentors/ronald-schirmer) to process all their entrepreneurial skills and methodological know-how from lean startup to business model innovation into a digital toolkit to foster and empower a new generation of entrepreneurs in Germany and beyond.
