Henrik Benckert

I started out as an IOT pioneer during high school, building automatic light switches, programmable TV remote controllers and sophisticated DTMF-decoders. I’m still surprised that the skills and knowledge gained as a kid programming microprocessors with capabilities similar to a modern light bulb, still prove to be useful to understand the rapid evolution within IT today. It is amazing to see that the technology we only could dream about back then is now a reality.

After a couple of years at a technical university I somehow got lost in business, management and sales - switching C for powerpoint and excel. So, for the last 10 years, I have worked in different management positions within IT.

When I’m not working, I tend to hang out with friends and family. We love to escape to our summer house by the sea.​
