As German Consul General in Bangalore she works closely with Indo German Chamber of Commerce to help German Corporates and SMEs to improve their outreach into the Indian startup ecosystem and vice versa. After 30 years in the German Foreign Service with duty stations in Africa and Europe, working with German Parliament and thinktanks, serving as German Ambassador to Kenya, she is now involved in helping German Business to drive their innovation agenda in Bangalore. Together with IGCC she has created BIGSUN, the Bangalore Indo German startup network, which helps to open the eyes of German business to the benefits of interconnected startup ecosystems between Germany and India – and possibly other countries of the Indian Ocean rim.
