Peter Koenig is the originator of the ideas about source in this website. He works from Zurich, Switzerland and is best known for his seminal research and workshops on the relationship between people and money, and more recently to identity and entrepreneurship.
Peter has studied the phenomenology of money since the early 1980s, giving presentations and performing original research with small groups. Following an MBA in Geneva, Peter ran a business providing management training, leadership and strategic development processes for companies. In 1987 he became an independent financial and organizational consultant to companies and non-profit organizations. In 1994 he launched his first public Money Seminar and in 1999 initiated a new international conference series on Money & Business Partnership.
In 2009 he started elaborating his ideas on source, with his research involving over 500 entrepreneurs and founders.
