That's how we do it.
There is one thing we dont like about Tours: they sound like business Tourism. Zoo visits. Busses full of people are thrown at the facebooks, Apples, Googles and what not.
You might network with 43 other buddies in the bus, but do you really take home a lot from walking through a corporate campus?
We believe not. Thats why we are doing our tours in flipped conference fashion: Meet exciting people, gamechangers, have one-on-one conversations with them. Go into your specific space and explore possibilities, related to your own personal and professional development.
To ensure this is really happening, we keep our tours small to max 10 participants.

Co-Founder, Curator, Host
I'm an impact driven person. I like good and fast answers to solve a problem, learn, listen, pivot, move on. In a nomads like life, I commute between Vienna and San Francisco and the rest of the world where I help the best speakers in the world shaping their public speaking skills. You can talk with me about everything but boredom, this is a feeling I cannot recall. I am father of three amazing young humans and live with the most adorable woman on earth. Looking forward to meeting you!

Silicon Valley has been my home for 15 years, not only as place
to live but a mindset to aspire to. Whenever I return to Europe
I notice the many little things that made my home continent great, but also prevent itself from reaching the next level.
As someone who has undergone
the transformation from skeptical know-better to a more optimistic and curious Foresight Thinker,
I am happy to introduce you to different options you might take. Are you ready for this?
Might be challenging,
but usually its always big fun!
I've always been trying to interact with a lot of people, as exposure and interaction is a surefire way to learn and grow. And throughout this experience, I've noticed one thing: everyone has ideas.
But what's often missing for the ideas to grow and reach their full potential is the right tools.
A mediocre idea with great execution beats a great idea with mediocre execution any time.
So, my aim is to help you get the right tools for your idea to
reach its full potential.
Looking forward to enabling
you to succeed!
When you come from a rather small community in Austria and you are hungry for more, the first destination is Vienna. Next you realize, that the city is still too small, when it can be the whole world. And with all the traveling to the most amazing places, you realize that you have aggregated a lot of impressions worth sharing.
And you go back to your homeplace to spread them.
And watch people’s faces
light up, again.
Today I feel like building bridges is my thing. It does not matter where you come from,
to do the right thing.
Solve et Coagula - Coagulate and dissolve – bringing the most unlikely elements together and taking the unexpected apart – the motto of the Alchemists has always been my guide. Linguistics, the Austrian National Library and the French Film Archive, CD-ROM and Multimedia, AI and Ars Memorativa. Electronic Books in Santa Monica, and multiple Startups in the Silicon Valley. Mentoring, Life and Leadership Coaching around the world. Practicing Zen and sailing and raising my daughter. Amazing the insights you gain when comparing old and new. And it helps when you’ve seen a few things over the years.
I am a child of a priest and a politician. No, not really, but this is how I feel. And I love the amazing life of an entrepreneur. With all its beauty, its ugly, its traps and its opportunities. Give me a stage and a curious audience, and I will promise you that I will infect them all with the virus of being an entrepreneur. My home is Vienna and the people in Austria. But my spirit is the whole world. Let me be your missing link who understands so well, how hard it is to translate all the Silicon Valley Spirit into a world we are living in...
