Michael Hengst


Meet Michael!

I have over 30 years of game development, business development, planning & team leading experience under my belt, and I have worked in various roles for small and big companies. I have overseen development of small games with a budget of 50K EUR but also huge projects with a budget of 15 Million USD. I have worked internationally in half a dozen countries and have a „hands on“ mentality.

I am a project specialist who usually works on troubled projects that have a huge variety of issues. I offer solutions for the problems and help to get those projects back on track. I also work as a consultant for the Bayern Kapital, a public Bavarian venture capital company, teach at various prestigious schools like the SRH in Heidelberg and I occasionally speak at conferences.


Some of the companies I currently work for (or used to work for).
