Arne Bleckwenn is a young and ambitious serial entrepreneur. During the past 5 years he has launched several successful companies and, more recently, he co-founded the rapidly-growing global start-up, Wimdu. Arne Bleckwenn studied Business Administration at the WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management. Around the same time, he began his life-long involvement with start-up projects and gained his first founding experience. After finishing his degree he teamed up with Hinrich Dreiling to start his first major business venture in 2006. In the following years he founded and managed GratisPay and GameGoods; two very successful IT-related startups. In 2011 Arne and Hinrich decided to join forces once again and focused on developing Wimdu. The company is supported and funded by Rocket Internet- a German IT investment group.
