Moritz Philip Recke
I am a passionate and empathetic engineer at heart with strong background in product design, business development and project management, extensive leadership experience and keen ability to sense white space.
Engineer. Essentialist. Explorer.
After several years of building up digital companies and cross-media products as well as leading large IT and executive change management projects within the advertising and publishing industry, I now focus on software engineering as a creative process and group collaboration.
I founded MORE LOVE VENTURES as a vehicle to express my passions and a way to host new endeavors. Beyond a number of mobile apps and web projects in its portfolio, IMAGINARY INSTITUTE is a Milan based design and development consultancy, conducting progressive training programs in the Apple technology ecosystem with 25+ employees since 2021.
Additionally, I conduct scientific research on entrepreneurial ecosystems and sociotechnical imaginaries, their underlying narrative structures, and relevance within public policy discourse. As an Educator, I do research in the field of learning design and facilitate the formative education at the University of Naples Federico II’s Apple Developer Academy based on the Challenge Based Learning methodology framework.
Before, I was managing director and responsible executive for the digital development within the GANSKE MEDIA GROUP as well as personal advisor to S. Ganske. Earlier in my career, I was responsible for Controlling Systems & Information in the international agency network SCHOLZ & FRIENDS and reported directly to the corporate CFO.
In my leadership roles, I built up teams from 5 to 120+ and took full responsibility for product management, development, and IT teams. Also, I worked on international partnerships and M&A projects in Europe, the U.S., Israel, and India. Also, I have 14+ years of experience as an iOS developer, published 100+ apps, received multiple mobile app design awards, was featured on international media outlets such as Mashable, Macworld and ranked among the top 100 apps worldwide.
