One Wave never comes alone.

Join the WaveMakers community. Discover the leader inside of you. Redefine leadership.

We are WaveMakers,
a Berlin-based startup.

We founded WaveMakers to help anyone be a leader in their own, unique way. That's important. Because millions of insanely talented individuals out there end up following instead of leading, despite their evident potential.

We believe that you can create a massive impact by being your best self — and you’re not alone. We will help you navigate the ups and downs of finding your own path to make a difference in the world.

Make waves, move mountains.

The Wavemakers Team

WHAT?

WaveMakers is not a leadership program. We help you discover the leader inside of you. We redefine leadership.

HOW?

We guide you to influence at all levels while being true to yourself. Learn, experiment, and grow alongside other WaveMakers.

WHY?

Because leadership is not a job title. You’ve got the power to lead - in your own, unique way.

With the program, I learned to recognize the leader in me, I feel more connected to myself and therefore my desire to lead and create an impact.
