I am a consultant and entrepreneur in the social sector. Before, I studied philosophy and worked as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company.
I love working with people who are passionate about social change. The purpose of this website is to find out if we could do something together.
I hope we will!
I work as a consultant for Ashoka Globalizer. Ashoka is the world’s largest network of leading social entrepreneurs, with over 3,000 Fellows in over 80 countries. Globalizer is an international accelerator program that challenges and refines the scaling strategies of Ashoka Fellows. Ashoka Globalizer tries to avoid what many other accelerators do by default: helping organizations to grow. Instead, we help social entrepreneurs to open up and to spread their models as fast as possible.

Social Impact Consulting
For social businesses, not-for-profit social ventures, and companies with social initiatives
As a member of Ashoka, a former management consultant and a social entrepreneur, I bring a unique set of skills and perspectives to the table:
My thinking around social entrepreneurship is inspired by one of the leading organizations in the field. I am confident that I can push your thinking when it comes to “doing good”.
At Ashoka, I learned to always aim for social change on a system level, and that the impact that you enable others to have can be much more powerful than the direct impact that you have yourself.
As a consultant for Ashoka Globalizer, I have been supervising numerous advisory teams to develop scaling strategies for social entrepreneurs from around the world. I am also the author of the toolkit that guides teams through the strategizing process.
I was a management consultant and know the tools of the trade. These tools are invaluable when it comes to “doing well”.
At McKinsey, I learned that the most successful organizations today make decisions based on sophisticated models that are backed by empirical data, and that they keep experimenting to improve on an ongoing basis.
During my time at the firm, I conducted strategic and financial analyses, developed workshop formats, and presented my work to high-level executives at major companies and institutions in different sectors and industries.
I have founded and worked for social ventures myself. My advice is grounded in practical experiences.
Small and medium-sized social ventures: I know that you are incredibly agile, but you also have to juggle a dozen important things at once; you do not always have the resources you want; and your priorities can change at any time. I make sure that the advisory process reflects these realities.
Social intrapreneurs in companies: I can bring you the perspective of a social entrepreneur who has also worked for companies on large transformation projects. What better background to help you establish a culture of social intrapreneurship in your company?
