Christian Kraus CEO, betterplace.org
Christian Kraus is CEO of betterplace.org [gut.org gemeinnützige Aktiengesellschaft, the Berlin-based non-profit organisation running betterplace.org], Germany‘s largest online donation platform, hosting 15,000 projects in over 170 countries.
Christian started his career at an Internet start-up and eventually saw the big bubble burst. Soon after he accepted a scholarship from the EU Commission and spent 1.5 years in Beijing in a management training programme. Back in Germany, he then proceeded to Hilti AG as regional sales manager – and developed a passion for power tools that remains with him today.
Since 2007, he has been active as an entrepreneur and consultant in various fields, also starting to work for the social sector (full time and pro-bono). He is today serving betterplace.org in the strong belief that the powerful digital tools we have today can bring more overall support for aid organisations in our society.
Christian holds a M.Sc. in Business and International Management from ESCP Europe in Paris, Oxford and Berlin.
