Thomas Walle, CEO & Co-founder at Unacast
I enjoy building companies that solve complexity and fragmentation. New industries who are not yet defined and where we can create and lead a new category is where I thrive and have had success. Yes, complexity and fragmentation is hard, but even more rewarding when solved.
My two companies, both solved complexity and fragmentation. TIDAL (acquired by Jay-Z) changed the way people listen to music by unifying all record labels onto one service and saved a music industry from loosing towards piracy. Unacast tackles the booming sensor and proximity industry by building the #1 aggregator and platform for beacon and proximity data.
I built my professional foundation in something completely different than what I do now - as an Excel and PowerPoint monkey within corporate finance at PwC supporting corporate and financial investors with financial due diligence projects related to M&A
