Franz Purucker

Deutschland

Welcome! My name is Franz, I'm a 19 years old german and just graduated from high school last summer. Besides social commitments as school captain and youth parliamentarian, I've always had a strong interest for entrepreneurship. That's why I took a gap year to figure out how to combine my two interests, social impacts and business!

How?
I went to Indonesia as a volunteer to teach english and learn about social entrepreneurship projects. I ended up starting one on my own with Anang Setiawan as a co-founder. We named it Laros! But I guess you already know and support this ;)
I will be fully commited to this social enterprise until July; then it's time to hand over most of my responsibilites to Anang and the local team in order to stay sustainable. I will go on to do a finance internship in Singapore before finally entering the university of St.Gallen, Switzerland in September to study management. Being based in Europe will help me to approach the export market and I can directly apply new skills from university to our marketing and business development.
