I started Trendiction because I am passionate about social media and I love building things. My co-founder and I have developed a series of powerful and user-friendly tools (with some help from business angels, private equity and Luxinnovation, a local government programme), that give our customers unique insight into their internet presence; which in turn allows them to react faster, better and more accurately to consumer feedback, resulting in better products. Our most popular product, Talkwalker, was rated one of the top five best social media monitoring tools and online reputation management tools globally in 2013.
If I were in charge of enterprise policy, I would select a handful of entrepreneurs and support them for a year while they develop their ideas.
“Entrepreneurs are important to society because we bring new ideas, hope, vision and change.”
