Now’s The Time

There are lots of rec­om­men­da­tions when to start a busi­ness. Most­ly, we are advised to start-up when times are good and we can afford to invest some time and money in build­ing our own self-employed careers. Since I’ve dis­cussed that sev­er­al times over the last weeks, and , as so often, my view does not fit into the pre­vail­ing view, here are my 2 cents: The best time to start some­thing on

The Lull Before The Digital Storm

We tend to over­es­ti­mate the effect of a tech­nol­o­gy in the short run and under­es­ti­mate the effect in the long run”, the old adage by Roy Amara, was more than obvi­ous dur­ing Dif­fu­sion 2019, a 400+ devel­op­ers hackathon that took place in Berlin from 18–20 OCT 2019. Con­ver­gence, the coa­les­cence of today‘s hottest tech­nolo­gies, AI and Blockchain, was the theme of two days full of work­shops, talks, and, of course, hack­ing. The

Work With People Smarter Than You!

Asked about his recipe for suc­cess in busi­ness, Richard Bran­son once said he hired peo­ple bet­ter than him­self, have them embrace his vision and let them work on it by them­selves. At a sig­nif­i­cant­ly small­er scale of suc­cess, I have applied his recipe since. And for our com­pa­nies Datarel­la, Baltic Data Sci­ence and the new­born RAAY RE this has worked out per­fect­ly. What holds true for employ­ees, is true for busi­ness part­ners,

Solving Global Challenges 1: Accepting Complexity

If the blind spot of today‘s eco­nom­ic, social and envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment can be reduced to one sin­gle word, it is con­scious­ness. High­ly spe­cial­ized actors in dif­fer­ent domains focus on opti­miz­ing their respec­tive fields of inter­est, neglect­ing inter­de­pen­den­cies and not com­pris­ing real­i­ty as a whole but rather as many inde­pen­dent real­i­ties. Bridg­ing the gap between dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines through cross-sectoral coöper­a­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion is one of today’s most impor­tant sci­en­tif­ic, polit­i­cal, eco­nom­ic and

Have Conversations!

Yes­ter­day, I had to spend sev­er­al hours on trains mov­ing across Ger­many. Being an expe­ri­enced entre­pre­neur, I obvi­ous­ly had pre­pared myself per­fect­ly and lots of work to be done. When I arrived back home yes­ter­day night, I had done almost noth­ing of it — and yet, I felt great. Most of the time dur­ing the out­ward run I spent com­mu­ni­cat­ing about a poten­tial new ven­ture. Not planned at all, but I have a weak­ness for re-prioritizing every­thing as soon

Synchronizing Foundational Blockchain With Satellite Technology

Wow. My col­league Rebec­ca has done a tremen­dous job! She leads the Datarel­la team that came up with this first mile­stone for our Track & Trust project with the Euro­pean Space Agency ESA. Togeth­er with ESA, we want to find out how satel­lite data can be used to facil­i­tate last mile track­ing of sup­ply chains in remote areas. Often, aid deliv­ery can be tracked until the goods reach an inter­im stor­age facil­i­ty

Banking The Unbanked Internet of Things IoT

Bank­ing the Unbanked always refers to human beings and their enable­ment to par­tic­i­pate in the glob­al finan­cial sys­tem by pro­vid­ing them with bank accounts. In this post, I argue for bank­ing unbanked devices, i.e. machines, that are con­nect­ed through the inter­net — the Inter­net of Things IoT. Glob­al­iza­tion has made our world a small­er place: through the inter­net we know every­thing what hap­pens some­where with­in min­utes, through air trav­el we can per­son­al­ly

Disrupting Real Estate

On 1 August, we announced our new joint ven­ture RAAY RE we have found­ed togeth­er with our part­ners Ham­mer AG and Wert­grund AG. RAAY RE, which stands for RAAY Real Estate, is our first ver­ti­cal with­in the RAAY Oper­at­ing Sys­tem fam­i­ly. RRE offers blockchain-based prod­ucts and ser­vices to the real estate indus­try. The real estate indus­try has been boom­ing for more than 10 years and most play­ers with­in the indus­try have

Enterprise Evolution Model — The Modularisation of the Value Chain

Yes­ter­day was a great day: I could wit­ness the oper­a­tional­iza­tion of my enter­prise pro­to­col evo­lu­tion model. Nobody at the MunichRe sym­po­sium specif­i­cal­ly talked about the model. How­ev­er, the symposium’s theme “Mod­u­lar­i­sa­tion of the Insur­ance Value Chain” actu­al­ly is the oper­a­tionalised ver­sion of it. In my model, I describe the evo­lu­tion of the enter­prise as a devel­op­ment from the enter­prise as an insti­tu­tion, over the enter­prise as a plat­form to the enter­prise as a pro­to­col. Since enter­pris­es

Civilization, Culture, And The Human Brain

We become cul­tured through train­ing in var­i­ous activ­i­ties, such as cus­toms, arts, inter­act­ing with peo­ple, the use of tech­nolo­gies, and the dis­cov­er­ing of ideas, the learn­ing of beliefs, shared philoso­phies, and reli­gion. Our brains are mod­i­fied by our cul­tur­al activ­i­ties. Since all our brain mod­ules are plas­tic to some degree, we have the abil­i­ty to cre­ate sig­na­ture cul­tur­al activ­i­ties and to respond to chang­ing con­di­tions. This cog­ni­tive flu­id­i­ty is the human
