Jonas Höfgen

Economic student, trader and operative manager.


My name is Jonas Frederik Höfgen. I am born in November 5th 1993 in Berlin. But I grew up next to the german capital in Potsdam. I have a sister. She is five years older than me. My parents are born in Nordrhein-Westfalen (West Germany).

When I was young I played soccer in different clubs and went to the basic school “Insel-Schule Töplitz” next to Potsdam. Normally East German children attend the basic school for six years. But after four years I entered the program for talented kids at the private protestant high school Hermannswerder. I received my high school graduation (A-level) in 2012. Some years before that I stopped playing football and started to play field- & indoor-hockey.

What happend after my graduation? On the first hand I made a voluntary social year in sports for my hockey-club (Potsdamer SU). My job was to train kids between 6 and 16 years and to organize training, games, trips and competitions. As a consequence thereof I took the popular sports certificate by the german Olympic Union. On the other hand I founded the “Fritzlar & Höfgen GbR” in 2012. We made public events in regional clubs (RnB, House & Hip Hop) in Potsdam and Berlin.  Furthermore  we managed  amateur  fashion and  catwalk models all over germany with the brand 'Sacred Models Management'.

I moved to Berlin-Köpenick in 2013 and Started to study german law at the well-known university Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). I exmatriculated after two semesters to grab the chance to study business economics at the university of applied science Magdeburg-Stendal (Sachsen-Anhalt) in 2014. I was  elected member of the student association at my university of applied science.

Furthermore I between 2015 and 2017 I was writer and blogger for financial topics. I  published more than 100 articles, newsletters and pdf-magazines. I created a network of more than 600 members discussing and sharing information daily. On the platform Wikifolio i am offering public funds to show my performance and  to make possible to invest in my idears.

With my new job in Hannover I had the chance to continue my studies at the  private university of applied science 'PFH Göttingen'. My studies will end in 2019. Since 2016 I am working as  operative manager for the upcomming BoxHotel Chain. I am responsible for the 100-bed-Boxhotel in Göttingen since it opened at first of march 2017.
