Start-up Stories: From student to CEO
Get started. Just do it. Don’t let the possible consequences put you off. These are important first steps when transforming your idea into a business model. This is something Julius Harling knows all about. Julius is the CEO and founder of Graswald, a start-up that specialises in the digitalization of plants, trees and other natural elements. For example, game developers and programmers can reproduce entire ecosystems in detail – for movies, for games and for the metaverse.
Julius came up with the idea for his company during a school project in Canada. Surprised by the great success of his first projects, he started his business while at university. This makes him one of the youngest founders in our HTGF portfolio. In his early 20s, he already has a lot of experience in building and leading a good team. He offers us some personal insights into what it’s like to pursue his passion and turn it into a successful start-up.
Julius is the next guest in our series of start-up stories. He answers our questions and once again proves very impressively how it pays off to be brave and to consistently implement your own ideas.
A big thank you to Julius for all the insights!
