Passion. That’s what drives me as a founder and keeps me pushing to have an #impact. For years, I have been following my passion and gut feeling – whether it’s choosing my educational career, doing music and sports or building businesses.
At this year’s PIRATE Summit, I have met many #founders and #investors that are here for a higher purpose, to tackle the most pressing needs of our society, from climate over social to educational problems. Sometimes, people complain that as an individual, you can’t have an impact. Well, as founders and investors, we are in a great position to actually make a difference on scale by building on multiplicator effects to create an impact.
What I love about entrepreneurship is that there is not just this 1 way of doing it and getting into it. When you follow your #passion, you can make things work. Don’t be scared of taking risks. That’s what I also talked about with Eko Fresh, a German rapper with a passion for music turning into an entrepreneur to support the own roots with their Cologne-based startup Liefertürke. It may only take one inspiration to light the fires in others.
