Hi! I am Ralph

I am originally from Germany, and am now living permanently in Switzerland as a Swiss citizen. Life has blessed me with 2 grown up sons.

I am holding a PhD in natural science from the University of Munich and the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry. I received a post-graduate doctors degree from Cambridge University, UK, and was an Assistant Professor for Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the ETH Zurich in collaboration with Nobel laureate Kurt Wüthrich.

I founded Livenity in October 2014 with the aim of supporting visionary inventors and startups in fundraising, developing business and marketing disruptive products.

The next big thing

In my search for the next big thing, I found mindcraft, where I am now responsible for corporate strategy, investor relations and finances.
