Hi, I'm Jan König 👋. I'm one of the founders of Jovo, 28 years old, and live in Berlin. < Go back to learn more.

I've set my priorities

Before I moved to Berlin in October I thought it should be no problem to finish my studies besides working on my startup. It's possible (hopefully), but not without sacrifices. I had to set clear priorities and chose the startup (90-10 at most), because without full dedication it doesn't work. And it was worth it so far.

Here I am now, less than 26 hours left to finish my seminar paper on quite an interesting topic, actually: "Characteristics for Hashtag Adoption in Social Networks." And that's the worst thing about it: even though I'm "under-delivering by choice," I'm sure I'll be super frustrated about the badly researched paper I'll have submitted by tomorrow night. Because no one likes under-delivering. Wish me luck!

Besides that: we had an amazing week! More on that later :)
