Companies or initiatives I’m involved in

World Innovations Forum

The World Innovations Forum is my core engagement, a philanthropic project, helping spark innovation from within a country and create a self propelled innovation economy. We work with volunteers from nearly 30 countries who all contribute to that vision and working on making it a reality.

San Francisco Accelerator

Founded 2014 in San Francisco, the San Francisco Accelerator, operating globally today, works with representatives in 27 countries and helps young entrepreneurs to build exceptional companies in their country – driving a self propelled innovation economy.

Infinigate Cyber Security Group

I co-founded the company in 1996, stepped down in 2000 to move to Silicon Valley and now sit on its board. We are now going to take the company all the way to the top making it the most relevant cyber security provider in Europe.

Blockchain Valley Ventures

I’m an investor and board member in BVV helping identify amazing startups and bring them to an ICO, IPO or whatever means of capitalization to fulfill their vision.

Channel Excellence (Book)

Published in 2007, I’m currently working on an update and bring out the second edition with some up to date information about leveraging social media in the channel and provocative concepts like a zero margin distribution business model.

Beginning at Nothing (Book)

It’s not about “how to do a startup successfully”  this book is about what the most amazing entrepreneurs did or do to build a disruptive, global, billion dollar company in nearly no time. It’s about how to create a very compelling vision, creating a disruptive business model, going to market with nearly no marketing budget, driving daily growth like there is no tomorrow, taking the company to global markets and getting all the funding they need to make it happen.

Elephants Group

We are a small group of ex entrepreneurs in Switzerland. The purpose is continuously finding new ways to make the world a better place. In particular by stimulating innovation and entrepreneurship in each country and creating a self propelled economy in particular in emerging countries driving more equality in prosperity.

XeeMe – Digital Presence Card

XeeMe was a pet project a few years ago, creating a digital online summary. It shows all the digital identities somebody has and where they can find on or connected in. We grew to about 1.5 million users within a year.
