The reason why I established this blog is simple: I love innovation and I deeply believe that constant progress is the key to a successful future. Instead of defending the status quo I am rather looking for the creative challenge to make good things even better. The idea of working in a field of business where ideas are transformed into sustainable business cases and attractive customer brands catches my attention with much enthusiasm.

Tobias stands for entrepreneurial leadership, creative initiative and marketing insights. And the courage to challenge the status quo.
A little bit more about me
First, I have developed a broad knowledge foundation in marketing and brand management in more than 10 years of work experience. In my job at the Federal Employment Agency of Germany I had the opportunity to build up a marketing division from scratch and to introduce market and future oriented vision of brand management. I was able to conduct many change projects throughout the reform process of the BA from a static regulator to a modern service provider – with considerable success! However, my desire to implement substantial changes has come to a halt in my current position. This is why I am once again seeking career advancement. Although I truly believe in the necessity of constant and never ending improvement, I regard the decision to do a MBA in Business Creation and Innovation Strategy as a cornerstone of my professional career and my personal development. Taking into consideration my foundation and my interests, graduating from a leading business school in Germany was the next logical step.
To me, it is very important to look beyond the boundaries and get in-depth input. Although I have written many business plans before, I took chance to advance my knowledge in areas of finance and leadership in the course of my MBA studies. Moreover, I consider myself as an innovator. In the twenty-first century, the ability to understand business and the discover areas of improvement on a global scale will be highly prized. It is my goal to learn from experienced decision makers from many different fields of business by extending my personal network constantly. Communicating with leading innovators from all over the world via the MEETROPOLY platform represents a unique opportunity to gain unforgettable impressions about how to drive new ideas forward.
Second, my passion for designing new business opportunities grew stronger throughout the years. I think that MEETROPOLY is the ideal platform to challenge my ideas. The social networks offer the tools to develop my ideas further and to test them under them under realistic conditions and the guidance of experienced experts. Moreover, I consider MEETROPOLY as a hub where different individual ideas can be merged in an even bigger marketable business cases. The mix of highly motivated people, academic input and a creative infrastructure will open new opportunities where ideas can thrive. It is my wish to work with people who are able and willing to question the status quo and who see the great opportunities of our rapidly changing world. My knowledge and background fit me with the state-of-the-art managerial tools that I need to make entrepreneurial decisions on a larger scale. Moreover, I can provide valuable input on how to start-up a business. During the last three years I have devoted a significant amount of time and energy to this question. In my quest to start my own business, I faced many obstacles that I later found to plague all entrepreneurs in my country.
Third, there is an even more important reason to communicate with other experts in this field: Inspiration! I am striving to be inspired by any open-minded person out there. I am convinced that I will not only advance professionally but also personally within a growing network. It will be our task to find likeminded people and future intra- and entrepreneurs to exchange opinions and to make use of the extensive networking-possibilities. I strongly believe that learning in such an exclusive environment is based on giving and taking. In other words, I look forward to interacting with the highly qualified, diverse experts.
