Daniel was born in 1985 in Tübingen. He graduated with a Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Technical University of Munich with a focus on flight propulsion systems. Daniel started Lilium in 2015 together with the other three co-founders. His first patent was filed when he was still in high school. He has won multiple awards, including “Jugend forscht”, Germany’s most recognized tech competition. As a project manager at ABB in Zurich, he has gained in-depth experience in managing complex projects as well as insights into business development. Flying has always been his passion: he started gliding at the age of 14 and became a pilot before he was allowed to drive a car. He has been holding the position of CEO at Lilium since the beginning of 2015.
