Chief Project Mentor at HWTrek
Startupbootcamp IoT London Mentor
22 years experience in Asia working for multinational IT companies. Founded several start-ups in hardware, software and mobile apps. Prior to co-founding C2Call and joining HWTrek I sourced and shipped hundreds of different IT and consumer electronic products for billion-dollar companies like Actebis or Medion.
As Project Mentor at HWTrek I help innovative hardware start-ups to navigate the complexity of hardware projects in general and especially with the outsourced production services in Taiwan and China. HWTrek connects start-ups directly with vetted manufacturers and solution providers in Asia and provides online project planning and management tools.
With C2Call.com we have created an amazing platform that jumpstarts mobile communication development for already more than 10,000 developers who created numerous apps. Imagine you get all Skype or Facetime features for your app as SDK and cloud; that is what C2Call does!
Big part of my work at HWTrek is mentoring innovative hardware start-ups, to understand the Design For Manufacturing and Request For Quote process, how to work with factories in general. Beyond that I help to shape sales and marketing strategies based on my experience in IT distribution, retail and my years with MEDION that runs a very unique yet very successful burst-sales model.
