Philipp Kalwies is a entrepreneur from Hamburg, northern Germany. He began a study of international economics at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, but quit in order to pursue a career as an entrepreneur in Hamburg, giving sales trainings for sellers and taking responsibility for the promotional marketing of big hardware companies. As an anarcho-capitalist from birth, yearning for liberty, he always wanted to build his own anarchistic state. When he incidentally found seasteading he was immediately in favor of it and organized a talk by the Institute’s founder Patri Friedman in Hamburg. In 2010 he organized the largest libertarian conference ever in Germany, at which Patri also spoke. Philipp has written articles for libertarian magazines and also gave a talk about seasteading to 250 members at the annual academy of the high IQ society Mensa in Germany. In 2011 he will speak again.
