Juergen is a serial entrepreneur in several industries, consultant, author, mentor and lecturer at the Institute of “Entrepreneurship and Innovation” at the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
He studied Economics & Business Management and Innovation & Entrepreneurship at the University of Applied Science and the University of Economics and Business in Vienna, Austria and Leadership at the Theresian Military Academy in Wiener Neustadt, Austria.
Starting at the age of 23 he founded different companies and gained a lot of experience in implementation and the operations of many industries all over the globe. He has developed products and services and commercialized them from China to the USA.
Step by step he switched to the investment side by working with and for well known family offices. This is when he learned that there is a big gap between the entrepreneurial world and the professional investors, which was the reason for him, to start “itom invest”, a company focusing on the niche between investors and projects, trying to help both sides to get together for the profit of all involved parties.
If you ask Juergen, why you should work with him, he usually answers: “I have been there, done that - several times - on my own risk with my own money!”
Juergen is also the inventor of the “JELLY Valuation Model”. A tool for a quantified valuation of products or services, their market position and strategies.
If it is not about business, it’s about sports. Juergen is a very ambitious sportsman and competed in masters swimming, tennis tournaments, ski races, cross-country skiing, military pentathlon and some other sports. Beside that he loves to discover the world and is interested in close to everything.
