I am Mike Mahlkow, an entrepreneur with the passion for helping young people succeed.
I am currently working on Blair to improve the student financing system in the US. Before that, I was Co-CEO of a startup that connects freelance students and companies. I like numbers and I like people. I love it when these two meet.
I sometimes write on Medium and share my thoughts on Mental Models, happiness and productivity. Other than that I nerd around about startups and especially network effects a lot. You can watch me do so here.
I have enjoyed learning how to build companies at Stripe, Uber, and Sococo and had the pleasure of managing 200+ freelance projects in the last couple of years.
Outside of building companies and crafting ideas, I enjoy working out, playing video games and reading or watching captivating (fictional) stories.
