About this event

Come and hear from Alan about his experiences founding companies, hiring people, living a minimalist lifestyle and his sex-toys ecommerce startup. 

Entrepreneurship is my big passion. Creating something from nothing is what I am doing wholeheartedly. I am the co-founder of 

One of my main goals is to simplify my life. I realized the fewer things I own the happier I became. Today I own about 119 different items.

Traveling just makes me happy. Therefore I try to visit as many places as possible. After visiting every capital of every canton in Switzerland, I started visiting every capital of every European country - until today I have 31 of 51.
