Simone is a corporate innovation expert and digital fluency pioneer. She arrived in San Francisco with a suitcase and an idea just over 10 years ago.
Against the sound advice of her family, she left her secure but unfulfilling management career in Germany behind and built a new life in southern California. She brings German CEOs to Silicon Valley to match them with innovative start-ups.
During the pandemic, she founded MatchlabN, a global professional development community where she trains Digital Literacy and unique human skills such as creativity, critical thinking, and emotional intelligence - or as she calls it, Digital Fluency.
Simone’s mission is to energize more corporate professionals, particularly women, to think about the digital future we want to live in and help create it.
We are Corporate Innovation experts on a mission!
We have a top notch education team
Simone trains CEOs and their future workforce to develop Digital Fluency and lead Digital Transformation with confidence. She believes that "to build a better world, we need to be supportive, empathetic, inventive, passionate, and above all, cooperative (SDG Goal Nr. 17) - that's why she founded MatchlabN. There she matches innovators to problem owners - together they solve global challenges.
