I have started my first company at the age of 16: With the help of Jimdo, more than 25 million people have created their own websites. In 2017 I did a ten episode TV documentary with “Deutsche Welle”: The idea was simple: Travel through 10 Asian countries for 120 days and pick one of the 17 UN sustainability goals.
What sounded nice in the first place turned out to be a live changing event for me. One example for climate change: I interviewed a farmer in India that tried to take his own life in protest by drinking pesticides in front of the Department of Agriculture.
When I came back from my journey I decided to invest my time and resources only into startups that are going significantly better then todays economy. So at the core of Planet A is the integration of science in investment decision processes.
