First post – or: about the insanity of being an entrepreneur in data science

Ingo doing what he is doing best: explaining things nobody asked for.

Oooook, I finally made the step and created a space for my thoughts on data science, startup life, and photography. And all other things I deal with. The reason why I decided to do this is simple: there are not a lot of entrepreneurs in the data science field.  Founding a company is hard.  Data science is hard.  Doing both things at the same time is insane.

It should not surprise that over the years many people have reached out to me seeking for advice.  I love sharing insights or ideas so please continue to do so.  But what about those who do not have the chance to talk to me directly?  Exactly.  That’s when I realized that I should get my act together and spend some time on writing the stuff down.  Which is why I created this blog.

I also enjoy teaching others about the concepts of data science.  Which is why at one point I created the crazy video series 5 Minutes with Ingo.  This idea now is also the origin for the name of this blog.  If you want to learn more about machine learning and data science, you should check out those videos. But be warned: they are a bit quirky.

In the future, I will share lessons learned as an entrepreneur (where I still feel like an amateur) as well as on data science (which I know a thing or two about).  I mix in some photography posts – because I enjoy it and why not?

Hope you enjoy this little place here.  And let me know if you have anything on which you would like to get my perspective on.
