Reiner Kraft, PhD

I have more than 15+ years of experience leading high-impact technological organizations both large and small, and have spent 20 years in the Silicon Valley. The past 4 years I have been working in Berlin, which also has a very diverse and vibrant startup culture.  

Furthermore, I have worked in larger company setups  (such as Yahoo and Zalando), as well as startups (e.g. Yunar), and therefore collected valuable learnings and practical, hands-on leadership experience. I have shown that I can scale your business from a small team size to large organizations comprising 400+ employees.

In addition, during my 20 years in Silicon Valley, I was one of the most prolific inventors in the area, filing more than 120 patent applications with the US Patent Office. Both IBM Research and Yahoo recognized me as a Master Inventor, and the prestigious MIT Technology Review (TR 100) in 2003 also nominated me as a top innovator under the age of 30, alongside other now-famous nominees, such as Larry Page (Google) and Jerry Yang (Yahoo).

Last but not least, I have a proven track-record of building up and balancing long-term strategic research (Zalando Research) with short-term tactical product requirements. This way products can benefit from the latest technology developments such as artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning.

How will we work together?

Before we start our collaboration I will set aside enough time with you to get to know your context, challenges, and overall goals. The result then will be a one-pager that includes a proposal, which outlines our focus areas and common objectives. 

If you would like to move forward then, we will setup an advisor contract.

To fully understand your organization and context, and to make effective suggestions, I usually plan to emerge myself full-time into your organization for at least 1-2 weeks and meet as many relevant people as possible.  It is about listening and mindfully observing. 

I would bill you on a monthly basis based on the number of days I worked per month plus expenses (if any). 

I'll work in your office or remote based on business needs.
