How to activate regional potential
Alexander is from North Hesse. As the ambassador of the North Hesse Accelerates program he represents the city and region at the TEDxKassel event. After having held a successful position in Hamburg, he decided to come back to his home region of North Hesse to use its potential and make it more attractive as a centre for innovation and entrepreneurship through the North Hesse Accelerates program. His strong committment to the region he lives in is driven by his liberal values of individual freedom, self-development and self-determination. For him, the development of our society and economy are closely connected and stand at the centre of his work.
For Alexander, TEDx is a great initiative to spread promising ideas and concepts all over the world. It motivates him to contribute to this global sharing and learning initiative so that other people can benefit from his experience and take them to a next level in their specific context.
“50 years from now I would wish for all people living in societies that guarantee individual personal rights and freedom as a basis for a sustainable economy. Where all have access to good education and everyone has the opportunity to create and build up their businesses successfully.“
