Werner Arrich is a trained electrical engineer and pursued a career as a classic serial entrepreneur, which means he now has more than 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur in the field of software development and mechatronics. With this broad expertise, both in technology and innovative entrepreneurship, he took a software company public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange back in 2001. As a result, he founded other successful companies in the fields of mechatronics, plant engineering and medical technology.
In 2016, however, Werner Arrich gradually withdrew from the operational functions of his initiatives and, together with Ruth, focused on building the non-profit CAP.future ecosystem, which has already given rise to projects such as CAP.education, the makerspace GRAND GARAGE, the coding academy CODERS.BAY and NOVA ZONE. Werner enriches all projects as a co-founder not only with his years of experience in serial entrepreneurship, but above all with his tireless networking work in the field of technical networks. He is also a member of the board of the Coventina Private Foundation, which focuses on innovation and sustainability.
