About Me

Johann has been in the tech industry for almost 20 years, where he started by building prototypes for various startups before co-founding Seesmic in 2007 (acquired in 2012).

After 7 years in San Francisco riding the startup roller-coaster, Johann moved to Munich where he now works as a Tech Evangelist at Stylight.

Johann is not only a hands-on technologist but also has a passion for building communities.

As such, he organized 200+ events around a large variety of engineering topics such as Machine Learning, Cloud infrastructure or Blockchain. Johann is also the chief organizer of DAHO.AM – The Pure Tech Conference – which will gather 1200 attendees this year on topics such as Robotics, Mobility, Blockchain, A.I and IoT.

When he’s not busy prototyping new concepts or playing Lego with his daughter, Johann likes to “pay it forward” by mentoring young startups, share his knowledge at conferences or by connecting people.
