Hey, I’m Volker!

I am working in the tech industry. I am currently the co-founder of 2 start-ups (Blue Beck, Digital M) and Chairman of another two (Bibblio & Cognisess). I am 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 and a dog, I love skiing, good books, travel (50+ countries) and golf (though I am utter rubbish at the latter). You'll find more about me if you search for vhirsch.
