What or who inspired you to join this Meetup?

As a startup entrepreneur and a business angel I learnt the hard way what it means to work the conventional way instead of applying the Lean Startup/Lean Innovation approach :-( Therefore after reading Eric Ries' book in summer 20012 (I wished I had done so earlier ..) I pledged to not invest in any venture anymore, which does not apply Lean Startup/Lean Innovation :-)

How do you currently practice lean methodologies? What industry are you in/do you want to work in?

I learned about Scrum in 2007 after investing in a SW company. I applied Scrum there in the SW area but also in Marketing, Sales, Admin and Management. I am a Scrum Master since 2010 and Product Owner since 2012. I am a Management 3.0. Trainer since 2012 and a Lean Startup/Lean Innovation Trainer since 2014. So far I trained over 100 people in more than 10 trainings: I invest and work in ICT, Medtech, Machine Industry as well as Sustainability.

Are you interested in leading discussion groups/workshops/giving talks?

yes, I would like to do that and also to share my experience in community building. Therefore I engage myself as Co-Organiser in the Lean Startup Zürich Meetup. My vision is to expand this Meetup in all major Cities in Switzerland. You think this is a far fetch. Well, we did that before -:). I contributed actively to the build up of the Lean Agile Scrum (LAS) Community in Switzerland together with a committed team of enthusiasts. We started with the first monthly "Scrum Breakfasts" in 2007 in Zürich. Besides Zürich, which organised more than 50 Scrum Breakfasts events, also in Berne, Basel, Lucerne, Lausanne/Geneva independent grass root teams organize monthly Scrum, now called Agile Breakfasts (see: as well as a yearly LAS conference (see: More than 1000 people attend these agile events every year.


Hi, I am a Co-Organiser of this Meetup and a Business Angel and Board Member at Because I lost too much money investing the old way, I joined in www.pragmatic-soluti­ to accelerate the adoption of the Lean Startup approach.
