The following list is not really goals. They’re more concrete things I want to try throughout my life, but that didn’t make it to a specific list with a deadline (like the goals you find under my goals page).

The list below is for those goals you don’t just do every day. Most require you to actually take a plane or make a real & serious effort.

Career bucket-list

During my working career, I want to try a couple of things 🙂

  • Go public with a company as a top-tier stakeholder
  • Try the whole life-cycle of a VC-company: grinding, pre-seed, seed, A-round, B-round and then either IPO or sell
  • Sell a company for a serious amount (at least 10mio+ USD, preferably 100mio+ USD but hopefully a unicorn @ 1 billion USD)
  • Start a company that affects a billion people, directly or indirectly (~500.000)
  • Invest at least 50 million USD in at least 20 different companies as an investor
  • Interview on national TV (don’t know why, just some stupid child dream 😐 )
  • Get an article in TechCrunch (well, we sent them a press release.. didn’t work for our seed investment 🙁 )
  • Sit on at least multiple boards of fast-growing super exciting startups

Experiences bucket-list

  • Eating at a Michelin star restaurant (I’ve no idea how I’ve avoided this so far.. Had the option to many times!) Post about Michelin star.

Finance bucket-list

I have big financial goals – and you may ask why? Well, it’s expensive to go to space, live thousands of years, build companies (they sometimes fail), and invest in many companies 🙂
