Hey, it's Manuel.
Since I’m a child, I’m building things. With 11 I built my first website, the years after I’ve started an internet radio, a course platform to learn playing guitar, and an online store for hip hop beats.
With 19, I joined a fast-growing startup from Germany, Beducated, as the first developer, and with 21 led their Product & Engineering departments for 2 years. At that time, I also founded my first serious startup — a non-profit crowdfunding platform without fees.
2020, I then founded BlogTec — a platform that provides companies with high-quality SEO services by matching their tasks with the best fitting freelance-professionals.
I was born and grew up in the North of Germany. After I made it through school, I worked for a year to save some money.
Already as a child, I wanted to see the world, so with 19 I booked a one-way ticket to Bangkok to travel the world. Initially planned was 1 year, but after just 2 weeks I had the idea for the crowdfunding platform, and decided to work on it abroad.
After that, I was moving around the world for years, while working on startups. In those years, I’ve lived on multiple continents, and travelled 40+ countries.
