Innovation is dear to my heart. It is the ART of technology. Creativity at its best – and when done right useful for millions of people. But it is also the CORE ENGINE of any economy. There is a direct correlation between innovation & entrepreneurship on one side and prosperity on the other side. Highly innovative nations are the most prosper. I founded the World Innovations Forum to contribute to the development of innovation and entrepreneurship in all nations.
Being an entrepreneur almost all my business live and coming from an entrepreneurs family, I can’t help support other entrepreneurs as good as possible. After my wife and I decided to step down as entrepreneur and no longer build our own companies, we decided to help others build their companies.
We started the San Francisco Accelerator in 2014 in San Francisco and ran six badges so far. We are very proud of the companies we worked with and realize that the otherwise high failure rate of entrepreneurs can be reduced.
Humanity and the whole world is in great danger for as long as I live. However, all I ever experienced has been some ditches here and there but otherwise amazing enhancements and a superb evolution. When I look into the future I see changes that are grander than anything I’ve seen before – yet I see quantum jumps in terms of advancing humanity and the quality of our mother planet that I often refer to as paradise instead of earth. I’m known by people close to me that I’m pretty good at predicting the development of technology and the correlating social evolution. My new book “World With No Work” will provide some scenarios and some rather likely development for the next 25 to 50 years.
