Furkan Taspinar


I live in Germany.
I lived in London, England.
I lived in Sweden.
I have Turkish roots.

As an Information Systems student at the University of Cologne, I am enthusiastic about using technology for social good and stretching our imagination to comprehend and make use of the discoveries in the universe. I have interests in programming and tech entrepreneurship and have research and work experience in both areas. I have won the Kumon Mathematics Award and the „Digital Wunderkind“-Award and I am also a Google Developer Challenge Scholar and a Udacity Scholar. I am dedicated to building something innovative and have created an Organization called „legal-design-association.org“ that brings together designers, IT professionals and lawyers in order to make Law more usable and user-friendly. I am focusing all my efforts on creating new products for this thing called „The Internet“. And one day I hope to make something that impresses my Mum.
