Katja Andes, born 1985, was a consultant at Siemens and co-founder and coach at ideacamp.
Andes started a “classic” path at the age of 19: a dual degree in business administration in cooperation with Siemens. There she started her professional life at the age of 22 in an internal consultancy. After two years of full-time employment, she decided to reduce her consulting job to part-time and complete a master's degree in management. During her studies at the University of Mannheim and Aalto University in Helsinki, she came more and more into contact with the topic of entrepreneurship and self-employment as a possible option for a corporate career. In 2012 she quit her job as a consultant in order to concentrate fully on her independent work.
Since 2011, she and her 3 co-founders from the Ideacamp have been helping other founders to avoid typical mistakes and test an idea quickly and with little money. She also works as a freelancer and supports technology transfers from research institutes in the marketing of patents. In Spring 2013, she decided to share her passion for location-independent work with others and organizes weekly events for founders, freelancers, entrepreneurs and creatives, working together with like-minded people in beautiful, sunny locations, under the name Sunny Office 1-2 would like.
