In early 2019, we invited our community to nominate other members for the position of a community representative in the Impact Hub Zürich board. Out of 21 nominations, 3 members made it into the final round. All Impact Hub Zürich members have not the opportunity to vote until August 31 for their favorite candidate!
The three finalists are:
An entrepreneur at heart, Tobias is a former founder in the education technology sector, a strong believer in values, teams and their joint potential, a passionate strategist in the area of business, collaboration, engineering processes as well as digital transformation.
With a lot of love and respect for Impact Hub’s and former Colab’s endeavor, he was lucky to not only experience but also get the chance to shape Impact Hub’s recent history in the role of an active community member. The spirit and network the community provided became both a guiding principles and an endless pool of friendly advice and expertise to solve whatever challenge showed up on the horizon. With growing experience he started supporting other members either directly or through Impact Hub’s various offerings and workshops for startups such as the Kickstart Accelerator.
Tobias is convinced that the community is Impact Hub’s soul and foundation, its premier product, and the starting point and safety net for many former, current and future entrepreneurs set out to have an impact on our future.
As long as the community remains powerful and healthy, and as long as it is given both the freedom and the support to adjust to whatever our world might look like tomorrow, Impact Hub and its community will be able to stay relevant and provide to its members what entrepreneurs need: Values, guidance and a professional environment to grow impactful ideas into sustainable businesses.
