I’m Mike Flache — an advisor and mentor, former entrepreneur and angel investor. Together with talented teams, I build digital businesses worldwide. Onalytica’s analysts named me one of the top-10 global thought leaders in digital transformation.
I help high-tech innovators in Silicon Valley, Europe, and Asia grow and scale. The main focus is on business models in the fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing, blockchain, and AR/VR. These include companies such as Fundment, Baqend, Codetrails, Ctrlflow, IHSE, Hiprocall, and Tecflower, to name a few.
Together with the Fundment team, we are currently building one of the next billion-dollar companies in financial technology. I’m also a partner of venture capital and private equity companies, such as V/G Ventures Switzerland, Scale Capital in Denmark and the USA, and a mentor and jury member of the Get in the Ring Foundation.
As a recognized thought leader, I collaborate with Fortune 500 companies, innovators, and technology vendors. Over the years, I’ve worked with executives of companies such as the Silicon Valley Innovation Center, Google, Amazon, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei Technologies, and Mercedes-Benz.
As a mentor for aspiring entrepreneurs and young executives, I pass on lessons learned to the next generation of business leaders. The core topics are the development of sustainable growth strategies for the digital age and the scaling of digital value creation.
Every year I’m a guest at conferences and events, such as Mobile World Congress, Digital Asia, Huawei Connect, Digital Transformation Summit, and Digital Enterprise Show, to name a few. I also give guest lectures at business schools and universities, such as the Harbin Institute of Technology and the Singapore University of Social Sciences.
