International philanthropist; entrepreneur and investor in sport media and new technology.
Nicole, with her multicultural background and deep concern with society and peace-making, joined the global World Security Network Foundation in 2014 and became pro-bono Vice President Codes of Tolerance and International Curator of the art-and-video-project The Champions @ the Art of Tolerance. Out of her concern for society and culture she has created the JJ Foundation (www.foundationjj.org) in collaboration with the NMAC foundation (www.fundacionnmac.org). Nicole's outstanding support and commitment to contemporary creativity, culture and education through the arts focusing on Latin American artistic production has in a short time become of relevant recognition to young emerging artists in the cultural artistic scene.
Nicole initiated her business career in 1998 with an online games platform Winamax, and managed the company from the start-up through to its successful sale. She played a lead role in the huge success of securing the soccer world cup rights for Germany in 2006 and subsequently became instrumental in the global expansion of Infront, one of the leading Sports Media rights companies in the world. Leveraging off her Infront participation, Nicole progressed to identifying the opportunity to establish and manage the first dedicated sports fund in the world for which she raised circa €250m from investors. She is now a much sought after investor and mentor in the international arenas of sport media and new technology ventures working across Europe, Asia and North America
