Philipp Dennis is Managing Director at the digitalHUB Aachen.
PDN’s career so far enabled him to contribute his skills as an Investor & Entrepreneur, Company Builder and Corporate Executive in the fields of Startups & Innovation, Banking & Finance as well as in Energy & Climate.
He himself furthermore agrees with what is said to be a quote by Mr. Francois-René de Chateaubriand (Writer, politician and inventor of Steak “Chateaubriand"):
“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”
For PDN this means that he advises German Mittelstand Companies, Startups and Founders on digital issues.
Thus, he helps connecting the dots between Startups, Corporates, Academia and Politics as he truly believes that real innovation and breakthrough only comes from where different disciplines meet.
Before joining digitalHUB Aachen he gained broad international experience in banking and energy as he worked at Deutsche Bank and E.ON amongst others.
In a nutshell please see what else is close to his heart.
Mentoring Startups is close to his heart, in fact, he collaboratively set up a physical incubator in Germany and is responsible for the Alumni Entrepreneurship activities at ESMT Berlin Business School, where he is also an elected Member of the Global Alumni Council and President-Elect.
Thus, it comes without surprise that PDN holds an Executive MBA from ESMT Berlin Business School where he did focus his studies on Corporate Venture Capital.
He is the Founder of the "Queens & Bees Initiative", which is the world´s first virtual incubator for Startups. Queens & Bees is a community of Founders who support and mentor each other on their growth path.
Philipp Dennis full heartedly supports the Clowns without Borders UK Chapter and feels honored to be an Enpact.org Fellow
