CEO & Founder
Manfred started his entrepreneurial life with the age of 18 when he founded his first web design agency. At the age of 21 he founded mantro together with two fellow students. After 6 years of building up this digitalization consulting firm they started their own startup studio bringing digital product ideas to life, often together with their clients from the consulting business.
Beginning as a classical programmer in corporate environments Manfred learned that especially traditional corporate environments are too slow and complicated to meet the requirements of modern digital markets. Therefore he understood that he had to dig deeper into the practises of lean and customer-centric project approaches like lean startup or design thinking.
Together with his partners he turned his software development service company mantro into a full-stack enterprise digitalization service provider and venture builder. Using innovation methods they deliver services from the spark of an idea to the market-release of a digital product. By doing that for mostly traditional corporates they are sure to start a process of change within those companies. mantro believes that by helping companies to successfully run through the digitalization age with modern approaches those companies will start to be more innovative.
