I believe in a strong hands-on mentality. I love building new things from scratch and get them on track with a lean startup approach.
Digital-first is my maxim, connecting the dots one of my passions. I come up with creative solutions that solve problems more efficiently.
As a lecturer in visual communication at the HFT and HFW, I encourage my students to tackle business topics with creativity.
Hey! I'm Niklas, a serial entrepreneur from Zurich.
I’ve been passionate about entrepreneurship and tech start-ups since I started my first company at age 13. I pursued my passion by helping SMEs to successfully enter the digital era. Besides individual consultation, I founded the creative company JUNG design which was specialized in outsourcing marketing services. It was while studying at the University of Zurich that my drive for entrepreneurship took me to the next adventure.
In 2012, I co-founded the creative agency Videodesign.com which counts Fortune 500 companies like Allianz, Intel, Nike, Nestlé, Roche, Siemens, Swatch, and UBS among its customers. The business instantly took off and has been in the black every year since its foundation. I am currently working as the CEO of haip AG and Videodesign.ch GmbH. In addition, I lecture visual communication at HFT and HFW.
If I’m not exploring new business ideas, you’ll find me outdoors in the Swiss Alps. Either climbing, hiking, or riding my mountain bike on single trails. I love scuba diving and broadening my horizon, whether it is the own inner world with meditation or the manifold splendor of different cultures. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Zurich.
