David Zimmer was infected by the startup virus at the very beginning of his career. Since then he has held various executive operative and investment functions. And he has experienced the tougher side of entrepreneurialism for himself. Influenced by two boom-and-bust phases, he does not chase after every trend but analyzes business models carefully to assess their substance and sustainability. He loves clear and open words more than the effort of diplomacy. He loves laughing not just at black humor but also himself, and draws his energy from his family and mountain biking.
