Hey, I'm Volker!
Macclesfield, Cheshire, UK · Member since June 2011

I am working in the tech industry. I am currently the co-founder of 3 start-ups (Blue Beck, Digital M and Oystercrowd) and Chairman of another one (Cognisess). I am also a Venture Partner at Emerge Venture Lab, an education-tech accelerator born out of the University of Oxford's Said Business School. I used to be the Global Head of Games for BlackBerry. I am also a school governor at the Fallibroome Academy, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and a co-founder of Mobile Monday Manchester.

I am originally from Germany but I live in the UK. Married with two kids, I blog and speak regularly (publicly and otherwise), love skiing, good books, travel (50+ countries) and golf (though I am utter rubbish at the latter). You'll find my blog, (website hidden) (and more about me) if you search for vhirsch.
