As an automotive engineer, he is driven by efficiency and loves streamlined, flawless processes. He always stays on top of things, is reliable as clockwork and pushes himself and the team forward.
Jorin holds a German university-diploma (equivalent to M.Eng.) in automotive engineering from the University of Stuttgart and a Master’s degree in Business Administration.
Jorin co-founded two companies in bootstrapping-mode: one in the industrial additive manufacturing sphere that failed in early 2020 as projects were cancelled amid COVID-19 lockdowns, and one in mobility management and technology that he made grow successfully as COO, sold his stake in and exited successfully in September 2022.
Jorin started his career as a management trainee at Bosch, completing a 24-month rotational assignment in Germany and Turkey. He then took on a position as managing director of an automotive supplier in Puebla, Mexico, producing lost cores of salt for piston casting in the automotive industry, a very demanding clientele.
