Our Team - Hands-On Experts


A plethora of seasoned pirates

We embrace the spirit of piracy in our pursuit of innovation and entrepreneurship. Our crew of seasoned entrepreneurs brings a wealth of experience from the startup and corporate worlds. With a diverse range of backgrounds in engineering, software development, economics, marketing, and more, we set sail on daring ventures.
Why the name"Blackbeard"?
Pirates practiced a revolutionary form of democracy. Pirates voted on who should be captain, set limits on his power, and guaranteed crew members a say in the ship's affairs to keep the ship running smoothly for months and discourage revolt. This is exactly how we guide our ships into safe harbour. The leadership of pirates inspires us. Therefore, we decided to dedicate our studio to the greatest pirate of all time and apply the best of leadership and culture to our employees.
Introducing our Advisors: A symphony of Corporate leadership and Startup ingenuity
We're privileged to have the guidance of two distinguished advisors, each with their unique backgrounds. Meet Heinz Karrer, a former corporate CEO, whose vast experience in steering multinational firms imparts us with an understanding of established markets and effective leadership. Alongside him, we have Gian Reto à Porta, a dynamic startup entrepreneur and investor. His entrepreneurial spirit, combined with a keen eye for innovation and investment, allows us to navigate the vibrant startup landscape and identify groundbreaking opportunities. Together, their insights ensure we balance stability with innovation, merging the best of both worlds to drive our success.
