Dirk Ahlborn is the founder and CEO of JumpStarter Inc., a web portal that believes in creating smarter and more successful companies by applying crowd sourcing from the conception of an idea, all the way through funding.

In the course of his multi-faceted activities at Girvan, he also managed mobile and web application developments as well as search engine optimization and online marketing.

Prior to 2009, his activities were centered in Germany and Italy. He began his professional career in 1996 as a broker and investment specialist at Bank Gesellschaft Berlin, AG, one of Germany’s largest banks. In 1999, he founded Rika Italia, distributor for Europe’s leading manufacturer of energy-conserving pellet and wood-burning stoves. In 2001, he founded Diva Srl, manufacturer, importer, and seller of residential heating and cooking appliances.
