Interview with an Entrepreneur
Nice to meet you, Bastian Baumgart!
From intra- to entrepreneur | If you’ve spent the last ten years working to initiate change in your own industry with full conviction, it can happen that you evolve from intrapreneur or “internal weirdo” to full-fledged entrepreneur. We’ve had the chance to talk to RWTH-entrepreneur Bastian Baumgart about exactly this journey. Bastian’s start-up EnergyCortex offers software-as-a-service and functions as an external digital energy manager, providing their customers with specialist knowledge paired with AI-based analysis in a complex energy market environment.
What is the difference between behaving like an entrepreneur while working within a company and Bastian’s new life as an entrepreneur? What was his biggest motivation to take the leap from a secure position in industry into the start-up world?
