In July 2019, tech pioneer, founder and innovator Rafael Laguna de la Vera has been appointed founding director of the Federal Agency for Disruptive Innovation SprinD. Rafael was born in Leipzig. Early in life, he developed a passion for science, technology and music (particularly for the world of analog synthesizers). This has remained essentially the same down to the present day. As an entrepreneur and venture capitalist, research and technology are his theme and motivation, and in his rare spare time it is filters and modulators that set the tone.
