Christian is the founder of atizo.com, the largest European crowdsourcing platform for ideas. His background is business and technology management.
Christian is the first-born son of a German mother and a Swiss father. Already as a child he initiated projects like a soccer tournament or a street hockey league in the neighborhood.
He studied economics in Bern and technology management in St. Gallen spent several years abroad (mainly in the US) and worked as a project manager at Swisscom and Swiss Post.
In 2007 he started together with Reto Aebersold the first crowdsourcing platform for ideas. Constantly fighting the battle of international growth he pushed in 2013 an initiative in the Silicon Valley. Accepting that the business is not scalable enough he decided together with his co-founder and his investors to consolidate the business, spin-off a consulting unit and integrate the software with an international competitor.
In 2015 Christian will have the opportunity to start for new ventures.
