Simon Kozlik

Head of Operations Germany

Simon Kozlik completed his international business studies with a degree in Business Administration and a B.Sc. After his studies and various periods of practical training at home and abroad, Simon worked in the Berlin start-up scene, for instance at Groupon, subsequently joining the Ventures Division at Axel Springer. Here he supervised the “ShopNow” project as Head of Operations. From there, he moved in the spring of 2015 to join the Dutch media start-up “Blendle”, which is backed by Axel Springer and the New York Times. This young company was selected by business insiders as a solution to making “young people pay for journalism again” and offers a platform on which users can purchase individual articles from their favourite publications for minimal amounts. Together with the Dutch management, Simon is setting up business operations for Blendle in Germany. Along with the “Publisher Management” sector, this also involves branding activities.
