Introducing the Team

By | Booster Inside | No Comments

ALEX

The head of it all. Alexander Ubach-Utermoehl founded the PropTech Booster together with Marc Stilke from Immobilien Scout in 2016. He built the program with the basis of his deep knowledge and broad network in the real estate industry. Next to the guidance of the teams he regularly moderates panels and travels all around the globe to spread the word about proptech aswell as to uphold partnerships in the community and aquire new international relations. Alex is a brilliant strategist who is always thriving, which his coworkers really cherish in him. When he actually has some free time, he loves to spend time with his family and riding his motorcycle.

Fun Fact: After hours he secretly works as a tour guide for techquartier.

SEBASTIAN

Sebastian Schmidt joined the team in September 2017 as second Managing Director. His tasks in the Booster include the guidance of the teams through the accelerator program, investment management of funds, coordination of the workshops, fostering partnerships between universities and conceptualizing of new formats. In his freetime he loves to spend time with his family and his dogs being out and about in nature.

Fun Fact: On a rare occasion and just if you are in luck, you can find him in a karaoke bar in Frankfurt as an Elvis Presley impersonator.

JAKOB

Jakob knows it all! He is the secret genius of the booster-team and is here since April 2016. Nobody could imagine the team without him. His tasks include the acquisition of new teams and their guidance in the program, which also contains the organization of the workshops and coaches, as well as the sector human resources and maintenance of the homepage and its infrastructure. In his freetime he loves to live the more analogue lifestyle by playing piano and engaging in the volunteer fire department.

Fun Fact: He loves the beverage Ayran.

JILL

That’s me 🙂 I am part of the team since January 2018 and responsible for the sector content marketing and social media. Next to the boosters social media accounts, I write these wonderful (right? :D) blogpostings and am involved in everything surrouding the online marketing field. In my freetime, I am active as a volunteer dance teacher and lead zumba fitness classes in gyms and sports clubs. I love my little dachshund called “muffin” and reading crime novels.

Fun Fact: When I was 9 years old, I was selected as “kamerakind” for the German kids show “1,2 oder 3”.

RAME

Rame joined the team in March 2018 to do his obligatory internship for his study in real estate industry, which in October turned into a working student position. He is originally from Winterbach near Stuttgart. He supports the team by his work in research and supporting Jakob with the companies database. He loves to go on walks to really calm down and think about anything.

Fun Fact: He already watched over 60 anime series.

FELIX

The newest addition to the team. Felix joined the team as a working student in June of 2018 to support us in the section graphic design in addition to his study program “time-based media” at Hochschule Mainz. He enjoys photography, specifically animals and nature, this is also where he likes to spend most of his time. In German you would say he is a “Naturbursche”! His last adventure was his trip to Australia from June 2017 to February 2018, where he not only studied “graphic design” in Melbourne but travelled all over the country.

Fun Fact: Despite the fact that his friend told him that he does not have to worry about sharks he ended up involuntarily touching a shark while swimming in the ocean in Australia. Scary!
