After several years of working as a consultant and project manager with corporates he co-founded an innovation lab for the energy branch where he and his team mostly developed digital products and taught companies lean innovation and lean startup methods. With his own consultancy, the Becker & Partner Institute, he helps companies to understand the mindset of being lean and agile and to develop new, innovative products. He shares best practices, know-how and tools of how to rethink business models and implement the New Work philosophy into corporate organizations.

Together with his wife he is escaping the treadmill. Since she is working for the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they both get to travel the world. And his next big thing is not only to stand aside young African founders and startups but to bring German companies’ top-level executives to Africa to learn new ways of entrepreneurship. Therefore, he founded the non-profit organization Idea Seed Africa, a platform and YouTube Channel that shows the world the size and impact of the Nigerian and Ghanaian Startup ecosystem.
