May 2019 – Aug 2019
Project Management Intern
In summer '19, I decided to take a break from esports. I wanted to explore other industries and roles. My goal was to move away from content and start gathering experience I could expand on with my studies of business and finance.
I thought that working at a non-profit would be a complete 180 degrees change, but a lot (if not all) of the same work principles applied. Working with a family credited for creating the best automobiles, however, provided me with plenty of opportunities to learn and grow.
I worked with Max Maiborn, Uli Schmidt-Maybach, and an amazing intern team on a number of projects for the Wilhelm & Karl Maybach Foundation as well as for-profit projects for the Maybach Heritage Company.
- Redesigned the digital presence of the Foundation
- Built a complete audience and donor funnel (using Pixel, G Analytics, G Search Console, Mailchimp, and WordPress)
- Coordinated existing content and rolled out the Mentorgarten Compendium, a playbook for mentors
- I also got to conceptualize an upcoming student challenge commissioned by Mercedes-Maybach
Very fortunate for this opportunity and a 👀 into the world of non-profits and family offices.
Home - The Wilhelm & Karl Maybach Foundation
The Maybach Foundation Mentor Talk Series is a discussion forum featuring diverse and relevant thinkers, visionaries, and drivers of innovation sharing their personal journeys from early inspiration to where they are today. The focus is on the mentor-protégé relationship, a theme central to the historic Maybach story and a core aspect of the Maybach Foundation's work over the past decade.
Mentorgarten Compendium - The Wilhelm & Karl Maybach Foundation
Mentorgarten 101 consists of 5 short lessons, or "modules," that explain various concepts, techniques, and ideas that are important to understand before entering into a mentoring relationship. The modules are not designed to deal with "theoretical" issues, but rather to provide a practical "hands-on" approach.
