Hey, my name is Torsten and I am the founder of NMS Prime. My whole journey until leading a business venture was characterized by my curiosity and the urge to learn new things. Besides sports and music, I really got hooked on programming. That made me realize, the IT branch is the only industry that could fit my expectations. Today I can say that access to the internet was literally the basic key to finding my purpose. Not only did I belong to the first Internet generation, but my grandfather as a cable network operator was also one of the pioneers in Germany in providing Internet access. After I finished school it was clear to me that I wanted to study Information Technology, which I then started at Chemnitz University of Technology. At the same time, I started working for my grandfather. It didn't take long before I understood how challenging the software implementation of Internet access in particular is. Even for a small operator, it was difficult to provide Internet access in general while guaranteeing quality of service. In a professional context, these issues are called provisioning and failure management. It revealed to me a completely new world full of topics with an immense potential for optimization. My developer spirit was awakened and I began to tackle and solve these issues piece by piece for our company. Our solutions aroused the interest of other cable operators and we decided to found an engineering company.

In 2015 I finally understood two things: Firstly, that there are still many Internet providers who lack a suitable software solution for these issues, and secondly that my whole life would not be the same without Internet access. It became clear to me that if access to the Internet can affect my life so fundamentally, it can also change the lives of others. Therefore, this access should be a matter of course. But for more than one third of the world's population it still is not. That was the crucial point when I decided to make our network management system NMS Prime a worldwide success. Together with this I decided to found an NGO called EveryHuman.online, which grows with our success and helps to solve this worldwide lack of internet access by helping people to have the same opportunities like me.
