Together with his brother Tobias and their common friend Joel, Patrick founded Optune 3 years ago with the aim to disrupt a highly inefficient and middle-men dominated live music industry. Their goal: Bring back the power to stakeholders in the business that really create value, the artists!
Always passionate about building ventures, Patrick was one of the first employees and shareholder of South Pole and helped to scale the business in several strategic positions within the company including ramping up new business lines. The company now employs >300 FTE.
Further, Patrick held an investment manager role for the CHF 500m Swiss Technology Fund cleantech start-up fund.
He holds a MSc. Env. Eng. from the ETH Zurich and a MBA from the University of St.Gallen (Dean's honour list, top 10%).
