My mission is to bring new things to life.

Before becoming a company builder, Daniel Pannrucker worked successfully for companies in the marketing, media, entertainment and technology industry and was involved in business set-ups and M&A processes.

Since then, he has been supporting companies in new start-ups, turnarounds, transformations, co-operations, growth, internationalisation, transactions and the search for innovative business models.

As a business angel and co-investor, Daniel Pannrucker invests in disruptive business areas and niches, which are synergised from his holdings and network. Depending on the problem, he cooperates with selected subject specialists from the areas of finance, production, tax, law, logistics, sales and technology and is extremely well-connected in these sectors.

Daniel Pannrucker likes to spend his time with his son, Titus. He likes to travel to unusual places and loves spending time outdoors. He is sporty, enjoys a balanced lifestyle and is interested in art, design and films. If a topic inspires him, he sometimes supports people in their personal and entrepreneurial development – without remuneration.

“The first
stroke on
the paper
requires a
courageous
hand.“

Daniel Pannrucker was born on 13.07.1977 in Luxembourg. His primary school teacher wrote: “Daniel is a loner with surprising creativity and a lot of ambition. With his inimitable and sensitive way, he wins everyone for himself. “– That still applies to him today.

He sought the unusual ways. Not always to the joy of his parents. Instead of enjoying a “sensible education”, he graduated with a diploma in Art in Luxembourg and then started a degree in visual communication and advertising at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels.
