I am grateful to have been born at this time. The flourishing of the PC, the internet, smartphones, the cloud, the post-PC era. As an entrepreneur, it's been an incredible journey for me. Having been able to experience this development first-hand, to co-found and grow several major internet companies in Germany, to go public and today finance and mentor some of our country's most exciting startups, is something I am thankful for every day.
Now the same dramatic evolution we saw in information technology is happening in genetics, biology, and nanotechnology. No matter how spectacular our technological development has been so far, I am even more excited about what lies ahead of us.
What started out more than ten years ago as a personal quest to shed the many extra pounds and the extremely unhealthy lifestyle I acquired while building web.de, turned into a full-fledged project and my number one priority: Figure out the best way to use all the available and upcoming medical knowledge to be as healthy as possible and to build a personal bridge into the future.
Over time this personal quest grew into a group of people, part German, part international, genuinely interested in healthy longevity and extremely positive about the technological possibilities that tomorrow has in store for us.
For us the prospect is clear:
Our generation has been handed the most exciting opportunity in the history of humanity. We might be amongst the first to overcome aging or at least extend our healthy life span for an extremely long time.
It's a unique opportunity that we want to use to our full advantage.
To provide a platform and the resources for the pursuit of our goals, I have created the non-profit Forever Healthy Foundation. The foundation and its resources allow us to increase our overall efforts, hire dedicated personnel, fund research and accelerate the access to healthy longevity for all of us.
May we all live long and prosper :-)
