with my host family by the way. My
own pursuit of happiness led me to
become an entrepreneur.
GAT:
What companies would you
like to work with?
RK:
I look at it as kind of a “Deutsch-
Amerikanische Freundschaft”
approach. We focus on German
companies in the U.S. and vice versa.
We have the cultural knowledge to
succeed in the German as well as in
the U.S. market place, giving compa-
nies the tools and the local expertise
to make them more successful in
their new endeavors.
GAT:
Any first success stories?
RK:
Actually we are already
working on first projects for our new
clients. Lili Tanner, a Swiss bags and
jewelry designer is launching her
own label Lili T. in Los Angeles. The
documentary ‘When I Walk’ which
premiered at Sundance as well as the
accessibility app AXS Map are being
promoted by Kunst und Kollegen
NYC. Plus, we are in talks with a
German car manufacturer who is
planning on introducing a new
vehicle to the U.S. market – a very
exciting project indeed.
GAT:
What are you looking
forward to the most?
RK:
At some point in the future
I might have the opportunity to
live in New York for a while with
my wife and my two daughters
(2 and 4 years old) and manage my
company from here. I think that
would be fabulous.
