Samuel Huber works as Strategy and Development Lead at Goodpatch Europe. His studies in sociology, economy, management and design led him to the Universities of Zurich, St. Gallen and all the way to Stanford and Tokyo. The fascination for systemic problems, making innovation happen and a curiousness for uncertain situations have provided him with a variety of experiences. He was a founding member of UBS Y, the future think tank of a big financial provider, worked in a New York art gallery, focused on development economics with Biovision and now enjoys his work in interdisciplinary teams to conceptualize and develop anything from compression stockings to electric mobility platforms. In addition to that, he is pursuing a Ph.D. in “Prototyping Strategy” to shed light on the interface of strategy and design in uncertain contexts at “the edge” of technology.
