"In 2007, after selling a successful startup in Germany, I decided to try a different life. I was tired of German bureaucracy, taxes and socialism. I wanted a real freedom and democracy. In search of this, I went to Australia first, then to New Zealand, and accidentally ended up in Bali.
On this journey, I felt that Bali is the only place with a true spirit of freedom and business opportunities. Among all the places in Bali, I chose Ubud for myself as the most promising destination.
Ubud became my secret weapon, with low competition among good developers, huge demand and a good flow of tourists' arrivals. First, I tried one property, then the other, a bigger hotel, Eden, and then we created PARQ. For me, it was the realization of all the architectural projects that I gained while mastering my skills in Germany as a student, but I could not realize it while working as an IT entrepreneur and taught at a business school."
