Moritz Eckert Talks Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Youth, and the Future

Moritz Eckert interview

“Just do it. Don’t listen too much to other people telling you can’t do it. Don’t think too much. There are so many ideas and a few people really try to bring them to life and to make entrepreneurship out of them,” Moritz Eckert says to young aspiring entrepreneurs.

Today it is our great pleasure to introduce Moritz Eckert,  in the newest interview from the Entrepreneurship interview series. Moritz is one of the co-founders of Germany’s largest donation platform left his studies and decided to try something else. Currently, has more than 25,000 projects and it helps to close the gap between small projects and big NGOs.
Moritz highlights the importance of technology and digitalization. He also shares advice for the young and aspiring entrepreneurs on how to use technology for the greater good, how to be prepared for the future, and how not to give up on your ideas.
We hope you enjoy this interview!
