Hi, I'm Klaus-M. Schremser

SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR, TRIATHLONATIC, TECH BELIEVER.

Klaus-M.

Who am I?

Picture of Klaus-M. Schremser

They say I'm a serial entrepreneur & mentor.

Me and my partners / best friends founded two companies which got luckily acquired. Gentics (an Enterprise Content Management vendor by APA) and Wikidocs (a real-time collaborative editing technology by Atlassian).

I'm an enthusiastic triathlete 🚴‍, loving family father ❤️ and an advocate for lifelong learning 📚. Investing in some companies (and getting to know smart people) is fascinating but adding personal value to companies is my passion.

"Passion, team and traction are the main components for business success.
A good product comes automatically out of good teams and passion. 😉"

Why is this relevant
for you?

Based on all the experience my partners and I accumulated, we want to give knowledge back to other companies. Many companies have awesome founders and great products and still don't get enough traction to be ultimately successful.

As we don't want to be consultants rather more like operative mentors, we founded The Scaling Team.
We focus on international SAAS companies which have a lack in TEAM, PRODUCT or TRACTION.

If you let us join your team, we jump in for 6 up to 12 months. Based on a mutually developed Scaling Plan and clear, challenging goals we will scale your business. Sounds interesting?

What drives me?

My being an entrepreneur stands on three foundations which lead to an important Work-Life-Balance. These are Family, Business & Sports.

A healthy mind in a healthy body

Working goal-oriented gives you a very clear focus. To fully disclose: I ❤️ lists. Networking and building private / business relationships are very important for me. One of my mottos is "gather smarter people around you than you are".

But there are so many fascinating things in life:

Traction

It's amazing to see businesses grow. Love the numbers and the energy you feel when you're part of these companies. Traction is my North star.

The last years gave me the opportunity to strengthen my sales muscle. This connects you directly to the numbers that count - revenue and profit. Implementing systems into your company not only makes processes distributable throughout your time but also scalable. One of my favourite B2B sales approaches is Aaron Ross' Predicatable revenue.

Growth Hacking

Learned this from an amazing guy named Tamir from Hackabu and soon it became a passion. Growth Hacking is about processes (not tactics) how to grow your business through analysis, metrics, experiments, learning and repetition. Better definitions can be found at this awesome site (www.growthhackers.com).

Why is Growth Hacking so valuable? Most companies do not dig into their numbers and do not track enough. Today we have endless technical possibiliites to get deep insights into your customers behaviour but it's rarely used. Most decisions and actions are based on guts' feelings. Can you believe this??

Way too many things

Just let me give you a brief list (told you I love lists) of what else drives me:

  • Vision, goals & strategy
  • Branding & Customer understanding
  • Team building & culture
  • Networking & building relationships (especially international ones)
  • Finances & Funding
  • Founding secret business clubs
  • Founding good karma clubs (Give Back Club)
  • Mentoring - how to make other people successful
  • Technology - Webtechnology (PHP, NodeJS, HTML5, CSS, mySQl, MongoDB, Mobile Apps)
  • Building websites & webapps since 1994 (yieks).
  • Investments into stocks (and innovations like Wikifolio)
  • Investments into Crypto
  • Real Estate
  • Triathlon and Fitness
  • Built my own interactive Triathlon Training Service
  • Investing in companies like the awesome B2B WIFI company Unwired
  • Diving, Sailing, Travelling (a little bit)

OMG, you get my problem. Too many interests, too little time ;-).

More insights on my blog?

Setting up this new site made me remove all my former blog posts and move the remaining posts to Medium. Read more about Traction, Growth Hacking, Metrics, Team, Passion, etc (and Triathlon) there.
