Hi there 👋🏻
I'm Onur Ay
welcome to my personal website...
The mandatory quote:
Nothing happens until something moves.....
Before you dive in...
Learning is not compulsory... neither is survival
This website reflects parts of my contenious learning journey from exploring and documenting things that I genuinely find interesting
The old school way of blogging #nofilter
I'm writing about a broad range of topics covering sports, enabling tech, books, investments, mental models and personal wealth ⚽️ 👨💻 📚 📈 🧠💰

For those who are interested in enriching their daily life/work/hobby with short pieces of content, feel free to follow, subscribe or even reach out
And do not look for patterns or rationale as it will be a mishmash of random and cool stuff that excites me... Happy reading and ENJOY! <^_^>
It all started in Bursa...
Born 1989 in Bursa - Turkey four years after my sister on the exact same day and hospital room. She considers me being the best birthday gift of her life - I'm also still puzzled ^^
We moved to Denmark in the late 90's and despite the short summers and long/cold/dark winters we haven't been scared away... yet
In a nutshell
Middle one of three siblings. A cosy family. Married and father to Atlas.
Live in Copenhagen where parks & cafes are never more than one stone throw away
Love eating/preparing practical food and travelling to new countries
Engineer with project mngmnt, strategy, startup & investment experience
Curious, creative & data informed approach to things in general
Passion-ate about tech, books (reading/listening) and ball sports in general
Played professional youth football in FC Nordsjælland while attending high school
Learned Danish and English in 6 months after moving to Denmark around 2000
Academic & Professional path
I've co-founded three startups within EdTech and proff services that did not really take off 🚀
Serve as the chairman of the board for our beloved building in Frederiksberg where the average age is 59 years old. Old is gold :-)
Check out more on LinkedIn or reach out with questions!
If you have a startup or know one who could benefit from a hands-on advisor & investor, there are great chances that I can get involved with resources (⌛ + 💰)
I'm genuinely interested in Future of Work, DeepTech, SportsTech, IoT/Robotics and Gaming.
There is a great match if the startup meets following criterias:
Early Stage PreSeed-Seed
B2Business and B2Proffessionals
Persistent team with tech edge
(Deep) Tech & AI focus/angle
