Dear Bernhard-Stefan, please introduce yourself – Who are you, Where are you from and what is your Background ?
My name is Bernhard Stefan Müller, I come from beautiful Tyrol and live in the Swarovski town Wattens.
I am a trained Agricultural Engineer, then studied Law and Digital Business & Leadership and started my own business, Tantum – A Company Builder in 2012.
How did you become a Founder and what was the Motivation for it?
I would probably have become a bad employee because I always wanted to change something, leave my mark, do things, not just talk. I have always been fascinated by Startups and People with Visions.
That’s why it was clear to me that I wanted to build my own Business and that’s how the Companies in our group came about and some Investments 🙂
What is the Name of your Startup / Company and what exactly do you do?
Our Company Builder is called Tantum. We are the One-Stop Shop for Startups and Corporates and develop the Company together with the Founding Team and make it profitable and ready for exit. We do Venture building for Corporates, i.e. let ideas from the Corporate grow and thrive in the Startup Environment.
Where should the Journey with Tantum go and where do you see yourself in 5 Years?
In 5 Years we will be the number 1 Company Builder in Europe. We will broke 1 billion shares to Investors per Year (currently it is around 18 million per Year) and we will be referred to in one sentence with the terms successful Startup, Investment and Exit.
What tips can you give young Founders?
Be hungry, be interested, soak up knowledge like a sponge and take care of THE ONE THING, your Baby, your Vision and make it a Success.
What is your favorite Quote or your own Quote?
If you want to be nice to everybody don’t be a leader, sell icecream. – Steve Jobs
