Location: Kampala, Uganda

Partner: UpEnergy

I am Lisa Ruetgers, a passionate, motivated, ambitious and curious career entrant in the social enterprise sector. I just started as brand associate at UpEnergy in Kampala, Uganda. My academic background is formed by a BA in International Management (FH Worms, Germany) and an MA in Conflict Resolution and Mediation (Tel Aviv University, Israel). Professionally I am experienced in sales (4 years), I worked as account manager and as sales assistant. Furthermore I was a top athlete in skydiving at the sports promotion section of the German Bundeswehr. I am aiming for a career in a young social enterprise (project management in business development or marketing), because I will be most satisfied by sustainably creating positive impact, while working in a highly motivated team facing many challenges.
