Rewind: A German and Swiss Entrepreneurial Conversation with Priscilla Schelp
Ever wondered what it's like to sail across the Atlantic? Our fascinating guest, Priscilla Schelp, not only survived a grueling 17-day journey across the vast ocean but also found the challenges of space constraints, rationing, and relentless weather to be a profound learning experience. Join us, as Priscilla takes us on her thrilling adventure, advocating island hopping as a more leisurely, free, and rewarding way to explore the world through sailing.
But Priscilla isn't just an adventurous sailor, she's also an innovator with a solution for startups. We discuss her vision to build a global network for startups and how she's breaking barriers in Africa's entrepreneurial scene. We tackle language barriers in Europe, Brexit's impact on the startup ecosystem, and the rise of the digital nomad trend, redefining how and where people work. But don't just listen to prepare for a future of work, learn to stay prepared for natural disasters, a topic inspired by Priscilla's PhD research.
In our later segments, we delve into the contrasting venture capital landscapes between Europe and the U.S., the burden bureaucracy places on founders, and the benefits of tax havens like Andorra, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, and Delaware. As we wrap up, we hear about Priscilla's journey as a moderator, speaker, and interviewer, and her reflections on managing rapid growth while maintaining respect in professional relationships. Lastly, we touch on the political systems of Singapore and Germany, insurance, job security, and volunteerism in politics. Tune in for this riveting, multi-faceted conversation with Priscilla Schelp.
