Hi, my name is Jonas Witt.
I'm an experienced entrepreneur with a strong technical focus.

Here are some things I built and like:

Njord Analytics A modern analytics and coaching app for professional sailing teams. Njord Analytics software is being used successfully by teams competing in the America's Cup, 52 Super Series, SailGP, the Olympic Games, and other pro sailing events.

Valsight An innovative software solution for simulation-based planning and financial modelling that is being used by financial controlling leaders at Siemens Digital Factory, Swiss Post, AIDA Cruises and other companies. I co-founded Valsight and built its initial engineering team.

metaquark An Enterprise App Store and development platform for cross-platform mobile apps. I co-founded metaquark, which was sold to Software AG in 2014.

FahrInfo A navigation app for public transit in Berlin, and one of the first apps in the Apple App Store, downloaded by over a million users. Apple aired a television ad for the iPhone in 2009 which highlighted FahrInfo on German TV. In 2011, eos.uptrade continued development of the app.

Research Way back, I did research on column-oriented in-memory databases at Hasso Plattner Institute and SAP for a project that later shipped as SAP HANA .
