Florian's personal brand is built around entrepreneurship, pluri-culturalism & environmental protection.
These keywords led him to China's startup ecosystem for the first time in 2010, and most recently to Mobike, where he oversees Global Partnerships and Government Affairs.
As the first foreigner in Mobike (employee #37), he internationalized the company by personally launching the service in Singapore, creating partnerships with international brands and opening up markets outside of China, inventing cornerstone features in the system, recruiting brilliant talents to fuel Mobike's growth & laying out the entire foundation for international growth.
Florian strives in the international start-up ecosystem by bridging cultures and promoting innovation. In addition to Mobike, Florian is Co-Director of Shanghai's Startup Grind Chapter, Mentor at Asia's No1 accelerator program Chinaccelerator, as well as a University lecturer. Prior to Mobike, he founded and exited WeSmart, an energy management SaaS platform, servicing MNCs in greater China (Coca-Cola, BP Castrol, Michelin, Carrefour, Sephora, etc.), raising 7 million RMB in the company's first round of funding.
