Work-out Your Career!
The next steps towards your meaningful future work-life
Do you know the feeling of sitting behind your work computer staring into the background and wondering Is this really it? Realizing you will spend most of your awake life working and asking yourself: do I really want to spend “my career” like this?
The notion of what a career is, is changing. No longer a linear movement “to the top” or a specific position, career has become an ongoing journey where your contribution to professional environments has a meaningful impact. This journey is no longer the collection of achievements, roles and functions: instead it has become the part of your life serving your values, strengths and purpose.
Now imagine: what if everyday “at work” you could feel and live such fulfillment? We are here to help make that come true

Niels is an impact-driven entrepreneur and co-founder of Impact Hub Zürich and STRIDE. With a background in business and economics from the University of St. Gallen, just months into his first job, Niels realized he could not flourish in a regular 9-to-5 working environment. He needed to be able to shape his own work and dedicate his time to something meaningful. Throughout his years with Impact Hub, Switzerland’s premier entrepreneurial community and innovation ecosystem, Niels was known as innovator, “Mr. Community”, and was active as business coach for numerous startups. He taught at ETH, HSG and BSL and became a sought-after speaker and facilitator. Working with learners is one of the things he enjoys most. With Impact Hub Zürich growing from startup to SME, it is time for his next adventure: changing education to create a learning world that works for all.
