Wolfgang Kerler
Editor-in-chief of the 1E9 Denkfabrik

Wolfgang is co-founder of 1E9 Denkfabrik and has served as editor-in-chief since March 2019. Together with the 1E9 team, he not only wants to produce optimistic journalism around future technologies and innovations, but also develop a new kind of journalism - one that arises through community.

After graduating in economics, political science and history, and completing his traineeship at Bayerischer Rundfunk (Radio Bavaria), he began working as a TV, radio and online journalist for BR, ARD and Deutschlandfunk. In 2018, he moved to Condé Nast and took over as Editorial Director at WIRED Germany. As a Burns Fellow, he also worked at The Verge, a Vox Media brand, in New York. Wolfgang has received several awards, including the German Business Film Award and the Robert Bosch Foundation Journalism Award. In 2014, Medium magazine ranked him among the top ‘30 Under 30’ journalists. As a lecturer, he teaches digital journalism at the Technical University of Nuremberg.
