Managing Partner / Community Lead
I have (co-)founded two companies and am also working in both of them: In the management of the Impact Hub Bern and as a photographer for companies and events throughout Switzerland.
++ The Impact Hub Bern offers a variety of programs, startup incubators, workshops, on average 40 inspiring events a month, not only for our community, but for the greater public. As a Community Catalyst, I create added value for our 300 members by actively connecting purpose, people, and projects. In addition, I am involved in the areas of start-up promotion, promoting female entrepreneurs and creative professionals. I give talks on these topics.
++ As a photographer, I work with my clients to create visual worlds, annual reports or other complex projects or accompany them photographically at conferences or congresses. In my work, I can combine my love for people, my sense for visual esthetics and longing to create stories with meaning.
++ And yes, I am truly thankful to be living a rich, meaningful and fulfilled life with two passions that became my professions.
