Eight, nine, or even ten hour workdays – Mario Conrad doesn’t think much of it. He is the CEO of Cologne and sports brand Ryzon. For him, the result after a working day is more important than the number of hours worked at the end of the day. Also because it sees that the time when one can work intensely is reduced to just a few hours a day. That’s why Konrad decided a year ago to introduce a 32-hour week into his company. However, new challenges have arisen that the founder did not foresee, he says in an interview with Gründerszene.

Konrad founded the sports brand Ryzon in 2016 with his brother Markus and Fabian Jung. The startup makes sportswear. A first for triathletes, especially cyclists now. The founding trio has yet to raise venture capital. According to its own statements, Ryzon generated an average turnover of the single digit million with the sale of its sportswear last year. The startup also employs about 50 people.
