Armin Bauer is an entrepreneur with heart and soul. During his studies, he was already active as an entrepreneur and involved in setting up start-up companies. He studied electrical engineering at the TU Munich and management at the "Center for Digital Technology and Management" of the Munich universities. His know-how in the field of company foundation and management combined with his professional experience in the digital and technology sector helped Armin Bauer not only with the founding of IDnow but since then daily with the challenges of his fast-growing company. Since its formation in 2014, he has worked as CTO at IDnow and always acts according to the motto that a successful company requires the full commitment of its founders and that only the fast and perfect implementation of an idea can lead to real success. At the same time, he always has market orientation in mind: A solution can only be successful if it offers a clear customer benefit.
Even adverse circumstances do not deter Armin Bauer. The challenges of a rapidly growing company and the complex requirements of the industry demand full commitment, innovative ideas and the implementation of unconventional solutions every day. Armin Bauer had to fight for his idea from day one, as Videoident procedures were not yet approved for German banks at the time. Only two years after the technical implementation of the idea began was the legal conformity confirmed by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin).
