Simone Pies

Head of Impact Investment Initiative

Working as a Business Angel and mentor with early stage startup founders, I realized how innovation and change can be established by introducing new ideas and methods. I think future entrepreneurial success will depend not only on the innovation of a relevant product or service but on acting in a socially responsible way as well. Successful entrepreneurs have to challenge the old economic paradigms and have to focus on a purpose driven approach.

I’m strongly convinced that we will work out the best solutions as soon as we share our know-how, listen to people from different backgrounds, learn from each other and work together on the same page. As part of FuturAbility, I am excited to support the development of a social responsible community based on the collaboration between business and impact driven angels.
