Felix is the founder of Fairmondo, an online-marketplace owned by its users. He holds degrees in political sciences, philosophy, economics, public policy, and administration. As an anti-corruption activist, he travelled through Africa and other "developing countries" where he saw how corruption deprives especially young people of life chances. For him, this experience highlighted the structural deficiencies of our economic and political systems. Later, he developed the model of "cooperative 2.0" and founded with Fairmondo its first implementation as a corruption-resistant, transparent, web-based cooperative.
