Raoul_Stubbe_Key skills

”I normally joke that my key competency is being broad – I’m not the best in the world at anything, but I’m good at most things. If I were to underline anything though, it would be my ability to evaluate the scalability of new technologies and their commercial potential.”

Driving force

”I have many driving forces that, when I have a good day, pass the baton between themselves. For example, I get excited by people who want to change the world in a positive way. I love learning new things and get extra-involved when I also get to take part in the creative, innovative process.”
