About me

Digital Transformer | Start-Up Coach | Serial Entrepreneur

Benno Burkhardt has been a manager and serial entrepreneur in the digital industry for over 20 years. He got his start in the digital business during his 7-year tenure on the management board of Scout24, which during his time became the dominant Swiss platform for digital classifieds. He then used this know-how to repeat the Scout24 success story several times for the Ringier Group in Eastern Europe and Asia. After that, as CEO at Gate24 and Publicitas, he digitized the print-heavy product portfolios and led the sales organizations through the first digital transformations. At Comparis he was the first CEO and led the company organizationally as well as product-wise from the start-up phase to a new maturity and performance level. In 2014, he founded the company Aureum AG and was active as investor, start-up coach and speaker. In 2021, he joined Stash AG as co-owner and CEO.
