I am the Global Manager of the Swiss Entrepreneurship Program - a program that works with startup organizations in 6 countries. Joining Swisscontact was not easy, though I always thought I fitted well with my experience working in the private sector for quite some years.
However, my first attempt failed, when I wanted to join during my studies at NADEL. Only after two years of persistence and not giving up I joined in 2014 - thanks Peter and Sybille! And here I am now, leading a great program with a great team across three continents. My best moments are working with the team on solutions that fit our programs best - and then presenting to our funder SECO with thorough arguments - so far we are on a joint learning journey.
Also seeing progress and development of the people we work with and having close relationships with interesting and creative founders is very inspiring and motivating for the next steps ahead.
