Sten Franke, Founder & CEO, ETHORITY


Sten’s journey is woven with a single thread – the world of digital. At 19, he ignited his passion as a robotic engineer, immersing himself in AI-driven technology. This early fascination laid the foundation for his trailblazing career in the digital landscape.

Driven by an insatiable curiosity, Sten pursued business administration and marketing, amalgamating his technical understanding with strategic insight. Embarking on an entrepreneurial path, he founded his first SEO marketing firm, marking the inception of his digital marketing odyssey.

As the visionary founder and CEO of ETHORITY for nearly two decades, Sten has spearheaded hundreds of groundbreaking projects across digital marketing, social media, eCommerce, GTM, and data-driven market research. His influence knows no bounds with an illustrious clientele encompassing the European Central Bank, 75% of DAX companies, Fortune 500 giants, Family Offices, Tech Startups, and SMEs.

Intrigued by the possibilities of the future, Sten’s latest endeavor, STEN.AI, materializes as a digital marketing coaching service and sets the stage for the world’s first generative Marketing AI. Pioneering a revolutionary digital marketing framework, he unveils the Social Media Prisma, mapping the trajectory of the top 300 social media tools and apps since 2008.

His profound impact on the industry has not gone unnoticed. The prestigious business publication Wirtschaftswoche (GERMANY) has acknowledged his influence, ranking him among the Top 100 most influential internet entrepreneurs. 

For Sten, digital business has been a lifelong passion. From early SEO endeavors in 1998 to navigating the intricacies of BIG DATA with generative AI (gridpatrol) since 2002, he constantly pushes the boundaries of innovation. He has championed social media automation and market intelligence with ETHORITY since 2005 and remains at the forefront of digital prowess.

Sten’s expertise is a kaleidoscope of digital brilliance. From conceptualizing and implementing media performance business models to monetizing digital assets, GTM strategies, NFT marketing, digital PR, and brand strategies, his vision shapes the future of digital possibilities.

With Sten as your guide, embark on a journey to unleash your digital potential and revolutionize how you envision the digital world.

“To be an entrepreneur is a passion. You can’t do it because it is a job. It is a passion you are addicted to. You have got to be involved with your head, heart, and your soul: Stay hungry and foolish. 😎🚀
