Why I Tech
The internet and technology in general is the strongest influential factor for almost every society and individual in the 21st century. No matter if you love or hate tech, it won’t go away anymore. But I refuse to focus on the thread and risks that might come with it and rather explore all the opportunities that it offers. This industry has the power to change the world. Working in tech means for me exercising influence and taking responsibility to make sure this change is for the better.
My personal tech/IT-trend 2017
Health care is still a highly bureaucratic, inefficient and expensive system in most countries. It usually takes a while until people are willing to accept technology in new areas of their lives but I’m confident that by now the pressure is high enough that we will see more and more health startups accessing mass markets.
