About Henning

*** NOT INTERESTED IN OUTSOURCING ***

I am often approached by outsourcing tech companies and entrepreneurs who want to collaborate. Often their skill-set matches exactly mine.

I am looking for a Co-Founder, not someone who offers development.
Unsolicited messages about outsourcing development or offering development as a company are spam and will go to the junk folder.

I have worked in the tech industry for the past 15 years. I have experience in management, in business strategy, and I have been a successful consultant for product development, product positioning, user experience and service design. I know what makes a good product, the value proposition, and I have a track record working with startups to create or improve their services and products.

I currently run my own company as Core, a consultancy for product and service development, strategy, product positioning, customer- and user experience. However, I am here for my startup project, River:

I am looking for a CTO to join me as a co-founder, to help me build prototypes, and then build, expand and lead a team of engineers and data scientists.

What I am looking for in a co-founder is a true partner, who thinks with me, but who also challenges my point of view. I need a true collaborator, someone who wants to make our platform more than just a service. What we will be able to do together is so much more, so much better than what I could ever achieve alone.

The idea for River’s service won the first prize for the best startup idea at the Startup Weekend St. Gallen. It is a unique platform that is poised to become the next big thing.

I am looking forward to hearing from you, to hear about your own dreams, your ideas and your perspective on tech topics, such as beacons, location awareness, privacy and big data. Let’s talk and see what we have in common.
