Victoria immersed herself in the Cologne startup scene more than ten years ago. After studying business administration, she worked as a product manager at the music streaming service simfy before moving to the startup incubator STARTPLATZ, where she organized and moderated events of all kinds for the startup scene. Her network has grown considerably: Victoria has become an important contact point for founders*, talents, companies and investors throughout NRW and beyond. In November 2016, she founded the ART@TECH art festival, which she also curates. Since then, she has organized five festival editions and several concerts, providing a platform for artists* and musicians who develop and perform technologized art. Since the beginning of 2018, Victoria has been planning, organizing and moderating events as a freelancer for various clients, e.g. the Digital People Summit, and is co-founder of moversxshakers UG.
