Business Developer at SchuBu Systems GmbH
While studying telecommunications technology in Salzburg, Paul co-founded the first company together with colleagues from his studies and worked in the field of developing value-added services in mobile communications.
Through organic growth and merger, their company became one of the leading companies in Europe in the field of mobile value-added services. Consequently, they were able to successfully sell this company to a listed American group after 8 years.
Paul then founded the association respekt.net together with friends and acquaintances. This project resulted in the first Austrian civil society crowdfunding platform (https://www.respekt.net) which he managed as managing director up to the first major waypoint of EUR 1 million raised for civil society projects. During this time, a number of subsidiary projects emerged, such as: Meine Abgeordneten and the “Orte des Respekts”.
Paul then worked for 4 years as managing director and co-founder with Edelwise Energy Systems on the patenting and development of an innovative Stirling engine concept.
At the moment, together with his co-founders, he is developing a digital teaching and learning platform (schubu.at) with which the enormous possibilities that digitization offers can really sustainably reach schools, teachers and pupils.
