About Paul


I am currently finishing my PhD about platform economics (Oct. 2017) and starting to build our startup *Mobilink*.

Mobilink is a MaaS (Mobility as a Service) platform provider.
The platform that we are building will - as a first step - aggregate local mobility services (e.g. Uber, Lyft, MyTaxi, Zipcar or Car2Go) into a single user interface. Customers will be able to compare and choose the most suitable and best priced transportation for their route (similar to free2move, Moovel or City-Mapper). Our UI facilitates the booking of a user’s trip to the destination with just a few clicks. Our business model creates a completely new approach into the mobility world. If you are interested in this position we will provide you with enhanced details about our business plan and the concrete vision for our product, which we will shape together.

The team consists of two founders looking for another talented, motivated and trustworthy co-founder and friend.

The two founders have a background in Industrial Engineering (PhD at TU Berlin and MIT Boston) and Law & Entrepreneurship (LL.M. at Cornell University New York and Staatsexamina in Münster and Berlin). Our connections to the US accelerator program, Techstars, and to many VCs and Angels, will help us in the future to accelerate fast growth and a rapid expansion towards the US.
