    Co-Founder, Managing Director

    Fritz Payment GmbH i.L.

    Fritz Payment provided high-volume payment operations products and services to online games companies. During our two years in operation, we found that the sales curve for new customers in the payment platform space is longer and more resource-intensive than expected. Continuing would have required a more significant capital investment. The Founders decided to close the business responsibly in Q2 2015 with a profit. Fritz Payment GmbH is currently in orderly liquidation. I am primary Liquidator.
