I'm Nils, 33, born and bread in Germany, Swedish by heart, South African by choice and true citizen of the Internet.
I grew up in a small city very close to Stuttgart the car capital of Germany. The love for the web and computers stem from my very first computer – a C64 – which I've gotten for my 9th birthday. Ever since I was fascinated by technology and fell for the internet while listening to the annoying but somehow beautiful dial-up tone of a 14.4k modem.
After IT-consulting for years for many of the blue-chip companies I decided to put the suit & tie away and exchange them for startup world in beautiful Africa.
I was and am involved in building some of the largest eCommerce properties on the continent - after serving as the CTO for Zando, Jumia and Style36, I've got appointed to overlook the technical side of One Africa Media which operates Africa’s largest portfolio of online marketplaces.
Music, sun, food, good wine, Weizenbier, inspiring conversations and my beautiful daughter make me happy. And I like being happy.
