Jan Reichelt

Co-Founder and President

Jan is Co-Founder and President of Mendeley, one of the world’s largest research collaboration platforms, with thousands of users and research groups and millions of research papers. Mendeley helps people to organize and collaborate on research projects and makes academic research fascinatingly more accessible and transparent.

Research can be a lot of fun, and so is starting a technology company. So why not combine the two? Jan already worked at two Internet start-ups during the first dot-com era, and having been frustrated with the lack of social tools for researchers he became a co-founder of Mendeley in 2007.

Jan is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Information Management at the University of Cologne, where he also was a lecturer in Electronic Business and Information Management, and spent some time as visiting researcher at the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore. Before that he graduated as MBA with a focus on Electronic Business, Accounting, and Entrepreneurship, having studied at the WHU, the LUISS Rome, and the University of Bath School of Management.

For several years throughout his Ph.D. studies he served as an advisor to a member of SAP’s supervisory board, unsuccessfully tried to start a travel company, and got totally fascinated with Latin-American dances such as Salsa, regularly attending (very non-academic) dance congresses.
