Wladimir Klitschko

Founder
Klitschko Ventures

Dr. Wladimir Klitschko sees himself as a pioneer who transfers his knowledge and experience from almost 30 years of competitive boxing to anyone’s everyday life and work. His goal: people should turn problems into challenges and tackle them with realism and courage.

His life motto "You are the driving force" was born back in the days. Since then it accompanies him as an athlete, entrepreneur and enabler. Since 2016, he has been teaching "Challenge Management" in his CAS Change & Innovation Management study program at the University of St. Gallen together with renowned lecturers from science and practice. He also shared his method with students from Harvard Business School.

Together with his team at Klitschko Ventures he developed the method F.A.C.E. the Challenge. By using this four-step process, anyone can learn to develop his/her own willpower, and act more focused, agile, coordinated, and persevering.

This conviction is integrated in all his own ventures and projects with partners worldwide. People of all ages from junior to senior, private and professional, should feel the power of their own belief and will.
