Verena Pausder

As Founder and CEO of Fox & Sheep (2012) and HABA Digital GmbH (2015) Verena is passionate about the digital life and education of children. While they can discover the digital world in a playful and gentle way by using Apps like “Nighty Night” or “Little Builders” from Fox & Sheep, they look behind the digital scenes and are empowered to shape their world in an active and creative way at HABA Digitalwerkstatt. Verena is driven by a great vision: All children are supposed to access digital education equally. Therefore, Verena founded the non-profit association Digitale Bildung für Alle e.V. in 2017. Commitment, networking and a hands-on approach are important to Verena: She also started the initiative STARTUP TEENS to teach students entrepreneurial skills and organizes Ladies Dinners to connect female founders. Furthermore, Verena is a board member of Alfred Herrhausen Society. In 2016 Verena was named Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
