One of our youngest participants to date, Vincent is the Head of Project Management at Zuio GmbH in Berlin.
He started his career in digital video in companies such as “Mi Web” and “Divimove” before heading to this original Axel Springer initiative, training young talents in journalism, moderation and production, relying on their talent and allowing them to develop and produce their own formats, publishing them on YouTube.
One of their key issues in this initiative is online advertising and branded entertainment, working together with brands and creating productions and formats that bring advertisers closer to the viewer, something which in his eyes, needs to be further developed in Germany.
“Having a leading role in a company working with creative people can be as rewarding as it can be frustrating. On the one hand you can work with wonderful people that have amazing ideas, on the other hand, it can be very hard to lead creative individuals. I quickly realized that it would take a lot of time and dedication to acquire the skills that are necessary to work with creative people. I would love to get a chance to be inspired by others who are also successfully managing these kind of companies while further developing my leadership skills.“
Vincent started studying Corporate Management and Economics at the Zeppelin University Friedrichshafen before joining the Berlin School’s Alumni Thomas Elstner at Axel Springer.
