ELASPIX

Tobias Günther is a geek, a professor of computer science at DHBW Mannheim, and founder of Elaspix, a fairly successful online 3D-configurator. At the same time Tobias is quite good at table tennis, has printed the Mannheim water tower in 3D, and can drive a tank. We met up to talk about Star Wars, Mannheim, evolution and artificial intelligence.

„THERE IS MONEY HERE!“

His first startup didn’t work out, but his second attempt kicked off a successful career as a business angel. With his Good Brands AG Mannheim resident Matthias Storch invests in good ideas and brands — but he just can’t stop starting up himself. We met the man in the concept store of his lifestyle brand BUTIQ in Quartier Q 6 Q 7, to sit down for an interview, and talked about the thin line between success and failure, pesky elevator pitches, and how Mannheim is ahead of other start-up cities such as Berlin.
