Hannah Helmke Founder & CEO

Hannah Helmke Founder & CEO

As CEO, I am responsible for managing the company and for making sure that our products respond to the needs and requirements of the market.

My focus on economic activity in a world affected by climate change is the result of combining both my academic disciplines: Psychology and International Business. I hold a strong conviction that a science-based approach is the best way to manage the emotionally charged field of corporate climate strategy. Before founding right° together with Sebastian Müller, I worked for the IT service provider BridgingIT and for Deutsche Post DHL Group, where I explored the potentials of digitization for reaching sustainability targets and worked on introducing science-based targets as reporting instruments.

To me, it is exciting to work with a dynamic and young team on a product which can have a scalable impact.

Leadership, to me, means serving both my team and a higher purpose
