The serial entrepreneur, Young Global Leader & book author to founders: It’s your responsibility to get politically involved to create a better world!

It’s in the genes of entrepreneurs to want to change the status quo – most founders do that by starting companies, creating innovative products and then give back to society or becoming politically involved later – after a successful exit.

But that has to change according to the guest in our show today – serial entrepreneur, book author and political activist and education advocate Verena Pauser, who’s one of the most influential founders in the German entrepreneurial ecosystem and named Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.

Just yesterday Verenas’s first book came out – and in this show she shares why founders should transfer what they have learned in their companies to the governmental system, to education and health care – in order to prepare Germany for a digital and sustainable future – and why the time to act is RIGHT NOW.

AND like always – our guest also talks about the tools that have helped her during her successful career in tech from how delegating everything leads to finding focus to where to find the energy to getting through the tough times as an entrepreneur.
