Stefan Holwe

Founder and CEO Horizn Studios
Travel has always played a major role for the serial entrepreneur: As a teenager, he traveled to places as far away from home as possible with a surfboard under his arm. After studying business and marketing in Hawaii, he finally traded in his surfboard for a laptop - but that never stopped him from looking out for the next big wave. After two years as a consultant for digitalization projects for a Deutsche Bank executive and consulting work at BBDO Consulting, he founded his first company at the age of 26. The digital marketing agency and another he founded four years later are both part of IBM today. At 34, Stefan sold his shares to join forces with Project A Ventures to build digital ventures; in 2015, he fulfilled his dream of founding a digital travel brand. Stefan lives together with his young family and Gordon Setter in Kreuzberg.
