Simon Dethleffsen

Business

Hamburg

I collaborate with executive leaders from public corporates and family businesses to design, build and scale digital innovations. This means to create new archetypes and often revealing solutions to tackle business challenges at the core. Humbleness and clarity, a human-centered approach and leveraging innovation ecosystems characterises my approach. Besides I manage our trend scouting team at the Deloitte Garage.

Before joining Doblin, I co-founded an investor network for start-up founders and family business leaders.

Northern Germany is my home area where the wind is strong and people don’t talk much. The proximity to the Northern Sea allows me to do water sports activities such as kitesurfing. I particularly enjoy the influences from our Danish neighbours such as Scandinavian design and their ‘hygge’ culture – a term for a cosy lifestyle.
