Meet our Team

"Challenge accepted." My colleagues say I am always on the run. I love to develop new concepts combining strategic thinking and a hands-on mentality. For me no is not an answer. So, don't get stuck, there's always a different route to take - trust me I am a traveler.

Anna Project Manager Startup Region_OWL

I am always aiming high: skydiving, riding roller coasters, off-track snowboarding and getting my license for recreational crafts. When I was ten years old I jumped off of the 10m diving platform. It’s not just that I love adrenaline rushes from fast and high adventures, I also enjoy my music fast and exciting. Techno and music festivals are my passion!

Jannis L. TEAM Startup Region_OWL

With my hands on mentality I love to "get things done" - non stop, like a Duracelll Bunny. That is why "Flexitivity" is my daily mantra. Ask me anything about the organization of our founders kingdom - I probably know the answer.

Jennifer Assistant to the CFO

I once ate the hottest Currywurst of the world, seriously 7,1 Mio Scoville! Burnt my mouth, but didn’t keep me from talking. I am insanely competitive and like to win. Maybe that’s why I’d want to be a bulldog, if I were an animal.

Jannis Public Relations

I am the only vegetarian at Founders Foundation. Some might say I’m the quiet kind, I’d just say not a man of many words.

Luca Marketing Communications

Every day at 3pm I make myself a cappuccino. Most people don’t know this but I was the cornerback for the Bielefeld Bulldogs for ten years.
