About me

My name is Josef Lentsch. Currently I work as Director of NEOS Lab, an open laboratory for new politics and the party academy of NEOS. Before that I was an entrepreneur with UNIPORT, and an international manager with the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce in London.

In 2012, I helped found NEOS and became a Founding Board member. Soon thereafter I found out that NEOS is part of a much larger movement of new liberal and centrist political startups that try to re-invent the political centre. This got me to start the research on Political Entrepreneurship.

I hold an MSc in Psychology from the University of Vienna, and an MPA from Harvard University. I am married and have two sons.
