About me

I believe in the power of co-creation and am passionate about building organizations that embody the Teal paradigm: practicing self-leadership and fluid roles in service of the bigger whole.  

Things I've done in the past:

  • Initiated & co-founded Impact Hub Zürich, Switzerland's leading coworking community with 1000+ members who prototype the future of business

  • Led the transition of the global Impact Hub Network towards a distributed governance structure with 100+ spaces all around the world

  • Played an active role in the evolution of various global communities such as Sandbox, Global Shapers and THNK

Today, I work with a variety of network organizations to build community and grow a culture of genuine co-creation in service of creating a world that works for all. The unique value I can offer is to build bridges across multiple networks and thus help create a vibrant ecosystem of mutual learning and peer support. In this sense, I consider myself a network entrepreneur

Recent engagements include:

I work with Theory U, Social Presencing Theater and The Value Web. I have done PhD studies in Organization Theory and published in the Stanford Social Innovation Review. To regenerate myself, I practice yoga, meditation and free dance forms such as 5 Rhythms and contact improvisation.
