The Story So Far
An Economist by training, a Communication Manager by chance and a Technologist by conviction.
So far I trod a wandering path across Brazil, Germany, and Taiwan from Diplomatic Delegations, NGOs, Venture Capital, Start-Ups and Think Tanks. Now I find myself at a much-anticipated spot, founding my own company: Archgriffin Consulting, a boutique advisory firm focused on supporting Startups in their business strategy and communication efforts, especially in the fields of AI and Data Science.
My goal is to provide the crucial reinforcements, those companies need to grow, raise a funding round or scale up. I want to empower teams to concentrate on their core responsibilities, without compromising on having proper communication tools, well-defined products, and refined business models.
Apart from Archgriffin, I mentor and advise Startups and NGOs and organize the Meetup.ai Berlin, one of the fastest growing communities in Germany for talking about AI, mostly practical projects and lessons.
Furthermore, I give talks, attend and moderate panels about the Social Impact of Emerging Technologies, exploring topics like the economic consequences of innovation (or lack thereof), Ethics in AI and Opportunities for AI in Healthcare.
How can we work together?
Help develop Business Models, Products and Go to Market strategies.
Create Narratives, Content, set up Communication Channels and Outreach.
Build Communities, interact with the Ecosystem, support Events, and Conferences
Some of the great teams I worked with:
Dataconomy is the leading portal for news, events and expert opinion from the world of data-driven technology.
They focus on industry giants and disruptive startups alike, looking at only the most exciting applications of data technology.
