Vita

Vanessa Weber is considered by many to be the voice of the SME sector. She is a blogger, author and influencer on the topics of entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership. Her debate contributions regularly win awards. She is the managing director of Werkzeug Weber GmbH & Co. KG in Aschaffenburg. At the age of 22, she was already faced with the big task of taking over the company as successor in the fourth generation. In the years that followed, she managed to more than quintuple the turnover and fundamentally reshape the company's entrepreneurial success. She is the founder of the Vanessa Weber Foundation for Education and Sustainability, an investor, an activist in the climate protection movement, and involved in renowned committees in the German and European economy. In 2019, she was honoured by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology as a "role model entrepreneur". Among other things, she is a "Mittelstandsheldin", a member of the European Board of the DIHK, the Association of Family Businesses and the Ethics Society.
