Welcome! 👋🏼

I'm Josef.

Professionally, I've spent over two decades in entrepreneurship, global startup ecosystems, venture capital, partnerships, and social impact.

I'm also a nature photographer, woodworker, maker, artist, writer, advocate, mentor, founder, systems thinker, reader & superconnector.

Need Help? Start here.

From startup funding to jobs in VC to mental models, I make an effort to share useful resources with the aim of helping as many people as I can at scale. These resources are far from exhaustive, but I hope you find some gems that are timely.

💡Bookmark this site, as I'm always adding new resources.
