Reiner Kraft, PhD

I'm a former CTO and technology leader, with 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.  

The Details of the Technology and Mindful Leadership Mentoring Program

Before we start our mentoring journey I will set aside some time with you in an introductory 45 minute meeting to get to know your context, challenges, and overall objectives.


If you would like to proceed, I offer two different mentoring packages:

 

Mentoring Program Option 1: Preparing for your Technology Career (Free) 

  • You are possibly attending college, and preparing for a career in technology.

  • I offer you a free 30 minute mentoring call every 6 months

 

Mentoring Program Option 2: Business Professionals (Paid)

  • You are a business professional and working in the areas of engineering, data science, product management, or technology leadership.

  • I offer you a 60 minute mentoring call every 3 months

  • In addition, I will be available via email to discuss your pressing questions or topics 

  • The mentoring fee is 75 Euros per month / 225 Euros per quarter (incl. tax)

  • I would invoice and bill you on a quarterly basis

  • You can cancel any time toward the end of each quarter. 

As a mentor I would like to get to know you over time, and understand your interests as well as purpose, mission, and essential values. I'm interested in a long-term mentoring relationship. This way, I can provide you the maximum value over time, and aid you in your growth.

At any point if needed I can also offer you a variety of leadership training and coaching options, if this is helpful.
