We create a reliable “total carefree package” for our members’ workplace. We are responsible with our members data and time.
We support our customers, members and companies to make the transition from “Old Work” to “New Work”. We provide spaces that inspire and create a work environment that is designed to help our members to get the most out of their time at work.
Our Founder Team
SALES & PEOPLE
I studied psychology and gained my professional experience in personnel management and start-up development at BASF. At 1000 Satellites I enjoy expanding my skills in the fields of finance and human resources.
‘New Work’ is 90% mindset and just 10% method. I believe that people aim to unleash
their full potential and need the right space to do so. A space comprises more than just a room with a tables and chairs, but also the freedom of choosing where and how to work as well as with whom to interact and network. 1000 Satellites allows me to provide this space for others, enabling them to show their full potential and support each other to evolve and operate. This principle is also the foundation of the company 1000 Satellites.

OPERATIONS & FUNDRAISING
A microbiologist by heart, I have been able to develop my perspective along various jobs in research and production at BASF. At 1000 Satellites, I am extending my operational experience and strategizing for a truly sustainable company.
In the corporation I have witnessed the time-consuming commute to work and the possibilities of mobile working long enough to know that the time is ripe for improving this situation for employees. 1000 Satellites allows me to develop a solution for this situation while implementing many of my own values, such as my strong pursuit of realizing sustainable solutions.
IT, MARKETING & COMMUNICATION
I studied economics before gaining professional experience in marketing and sales in various business units of BASF and in a corporate start up (Succinity). At 1000 Satellites I continue to develop my skills in both B2B and B2C marketing and sales.
I am driven by a strong entrepreneurial spirit. I believe that in the dynamic surroundings we live in, we need a different environment for people and organizations. I want to help make people happier and organizations more successful by creating a third meaningful workplace.
“I’m looking forward to being part of a motivated team on this new project right from the start and to see our community grow.”
After completing my studies, I was searching for a new challenge and an employer who promotes mutual growth, which i found at 1000 Satellites. I am glad to be able to realize myself here and contribute to shaping the German job market.
In short, coworking, new work and decentralized working offer me the opportunity to shap my work in my own way and work in a community of like-minded people. I can build my career while leading a fulfilling and balanced life. I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and look forward to being part of such a community.
“Coming together is beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” – Henry Ford. I look forward to the exchange and feedback to constantly optimize 1000 Satellites.
“Man is a social being and only strong in the community. That counted back in the Stone Age, as it does today for either coworking spaces or the business world). Come join us for the better.”

“New work is not just about new tools, it’s also about new attitudes and new approaches to community, growth and personal fulfillment.” – Simon Sinek
“I am very happy to be part of the dynamic and multifaceted team of 1000 Satellites and motivated to productively contribute my experiences from the hotel industry, gastronomy and of course from the coworking & new work sector of the past years and thus to positively and creatively shape and advance the further path of the young start-up.”
“Re-entry after parental leave, was made super easy for me at 1000 Satellites. Everyone here understands everyone else. The gratitude I receive for the work I have done is the greatest motivation for me. I am happy that I can contribute to 1000 Satellites through my professional experience in the hotel and catering industry and accompany this StartUp on its journey.”
“As an interior designer, I’ve been able to gain extensive experience in all areas of workspace design for many years and have been able to bring this experience to bear in a wide variety of corporate structures. Here, my focus is on merging the benefits and well-being of each individual with theenvironment.
My main intention here is to create the best possible environment for free development in order to promote creative and energizing work.
For me, coworking means achieving more together – so feel free to talk to me about it – I am looking forward to the common exchange at 1000 Satellites.”
“After studying business administration in Hamburg, I worked for many years in auditing and as a CFO. This supposedly ‘dry work’ is anything but for me. I am enthusiastic about all areas of managing and controlling companies, with and without numbers. My favorite quote, which has accompanied me all my life, is:
“Where would we end up? If we all would just talk about it, but no one would go to see where we’d end up if we just tried it once”
As a cheerful, optimistic person, I get a lot of energy from always trying new things, going new ways and not standing still. That’s exactly what I wish for from and with 1000 Satellites.”

Success comes when you do what you love. ~Albert Einstein
My motivation at 1000 Satellites is that we as employees also have the freedom to decide how and where we want to work. We are constantly developing and it always remains exciting.
I am happy to contribute my experience from the hotel industry as well as from the New Work & Coworking sector and to take on new challenges.
“As a literary scholar and historian, I spent my first professional years in the book industry before founding and eventually selling a start-up. After a stopover in the management of a continuing education institute, I am happy to contribute my experience in community building & management as well as in sales to 1000 Satellites.
My drive in doing so: “Sometimes you gotta create, what you want to be part of.” (Geri Weitzman).”
“After 10 years of professional experience in the wine industry in sales, marketing and research, I’m now excited to be part of an innovative and motivated team and to raise the profile of Co-Working & New Work in the region.”
“I am looking forward to walking the path “away from the classic working world” to “New Work” together with our customers or to accompany them on this path. 1000 Satellites offers me the opportunity to develop freely in a motivated team and to contribute my many years of expertise in the field of sales.”
“I’m thrilled to be able to support the 1000 Satellites team with my experience in events, sales & hospitality just as well as seeing the nascent company together with the team and coworkers expand into something big.”
