In this 6-part interview series, we introduce you to each of our (co-)founders.   Every two months, we will highlight one person to be featured in our eNewsletter “Let’s Talk Safe Anchoring”.

What brought them to Swiss Ocean Tech? What keeps them up at night? What do they wish for the future? Basically, what makes them tick.  

Thomas Frizlen
