ntrepreneurship was instilled in me at a young age, beginning at my father's engineering business after the fall of the Berlin Wall. I experienced first hand how he built a business from scratch. My first job was cleaning machinery but my eyes were always on the "boss chair" and being able to create new opportunities. I then completed a 3 1/2 year metal engineering apprenticeship before moving to London in 2001 to seek new opportunities. When I got here, I had the fortune of working with the CEO of a homelessness charity, shadowing my first social entrepreneur. This encouraged me to embark on my own mission to start a social business and to help young people.
