Over the last 3 years, Nico and his team have worked tirelessly in finding a new passion and direction, ultimately leading Nico to an interest in green technologies and alternative mobility solutions. After growing his staff to close to 20 people, investing in more than 28 start-ups in the space, and starting his own Greentech Festival, Nico now truly has become a sustainability entrepreneur in every sense.


The NR brand is built up on three main pillars: Doing better, positive change, and sustainability. Sustainability goes well beyond environmental protection and ecology. It also happens to exactly cover the business areas and ideas that Nico would like to see realized in his vision: a community of people and businesses striving for a more sustainable world.


While true purpose creates meaning and direction for our brand, company, and staff, our mission is what drives it home. If we are able to drive positive change for a more sustainable future, and we can stay true to our purpose, we will be able to touch many and inspire more to do the same. We do this by conceiving and supporting projects that positively impact the world, by connecting millions of people in search of meaningful transformation, and by acting in ways that improve people’s lives – starting with our own employees.



Our goal is to be completely plastic free by the end of summer 2020! Recycling, reusable coffee capsules, plastic bottle ban, + many more steps will be taken into action in order to become more sustainable, and improve our own impact. Meat-Free Monday and Fruit Friday are just to name a few – We will keep you posted in our next edition, hope to share some positive improvement and to inspire you to do better, too!




Covid 19 has opened up new opportunities for the entire office. After departing for lockdown, some employees enjoyed working from their home country, being close to family and friends helped staying motivated and pushed the happiness factor up quite a bit. Nico supports each and everyone’s decision and is offering remote working from now on. This also reduces the space used in the tiny Monaco office, which is not only a PLUS for the local ones staying on the French Riviera, but also has a positive impact on our environment, promotes digitalization and shows Nico’s commitment to sustainable business.



Nico Erik Rosberg was born on June 27th, 1985 in Wiesbaden, Germany and raised in Monaco. His family’s roots are in Germany and Finland, but he considers himself a German. His father Keijo “Keke” Rosberg, the Finnish racing legend and 1982 F1 world champion is married to the German translator Gesine “Sina” Gleitsmann-Dengel, Nico’s mother. They spend their time in between Monaco and Ibiza, the reason why Nico too has made these places his home.


After completing his High School at the International School of Monaco at the early age of 16, Nico got accepted into various Ivy League Universities such as the Imperial College London to study aerospace engineering. However, he decided to follow his father’s footsteps and committed 110% to the world of racing.


In his spare time, he enjoys participating in a triathlon, soccer, tennis, chess, photography, backgammon, karaoke and loves to read about personal development, striving to consistently find ways to push and better himself.





Nico is a very family-oriented person. He married his childhood sweetheart, Vivian Sibold in 2014. They first met at the young age of 9, didn’t see each other for almost 10 years, then started dating right away when they saw each other again at the age of 18 and have been inseparable ever since.


They now enjoy being parents to two adorable girls named Alaïa (5) and Naïla (3) and live in-between Monaco and Ibiza. The main language spoken at home is German, however, English, French, Italian and Spanish are commonly spoken languages as well, since Nico and Vivian are fluent in all five.



Nico began competitive go-kart racing at the age of six and achieved early success, winning regional and national French championships, before moving to European-based series and world championships. At the age of 16, he progressed to car racing, winning nine races to claim the 2002 Formula BMW ADAC Championship with VIVA Racing. He subsequently moved to the higher-tier Formula 3 Euro Series with Team Rosberg in 2003 and 2004 before winning the inaugural GP2 Series championship with ART Grand Prix in 2005.


Rosberg first drove in Formula One with Williams from 2006 to 2009. All new Williams drivers have to take an aptitude test in engineering when they join the team. Nico scored the highest score in the team’s history. He achieved two podium finishes for the team in 2008. For 2010, he moved to Mercedes, partnering fellow German and seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher. Rosberg took his first career win at the 2012 Chinese Grand Prix. He was the teammate of former karting friend and eventual six-time World Drivers’ Champion, Lewis Hamilton, from 2013 to 2016, twice finishing runner-up to his teammate before a title win in 2016.


Rosberg announced his retirement from motor racing five days after clinching his maiden title, citing wanting to spend more time with his family and not wanting his driving ability to atrophy as the main factors behind his surprise decision. Overall he competed in 206 Grands Prix, winning 23, securing 57 podium finishes, 30 pole positions, and amassing 1594.5 championship points. In retirement, Rosberg moved into driver management, television punditry, and became a sustainability entrepreneur. He was awarded the Laureus World Sports Award for Breakthrough of the Year and was inducted into the FIA Hall of Fame in 2017.


Rosberg remains close to the sport as a TV expert for the German RTL channel and UK Sky Sports.



Since leaving Formula OneTM, Nico Rosberg has embarked on a career as sustainability entrepreneur and investor in green technologies and mobility start-ups. Based in Monaco, he currently employs a permanent workforce of eighteen people who manage a large number of projects with the support of a dedicated team of international experts in Monaco, Great Britain and Germany.


Nico Rosberg’s drive as an entrepreneur is fuelled by the will to drive positive change for society and mankind. He pursues this approach not only in his business activities, but also as an ambassador for sustainable change through technological innovation, working with companies such as Deutsche Bahn, Kempinski Hotels, Sunreef Yachts Eco and Bianchi.


Rosberg has invested in numerous successful start-ups such as Lilium, Volocopter, What3Words, Tier and Chargepoint. He is also an investor and shareholder of the all-electric racing series Formula E. Rosberg is invested in numerous private equity impact funds that finance companies offering disruptive solutions in the transition to a sustainable economy and promote commercially viable solutions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals whilst generating measurable social and environmental impact. An example is Future Positive Capital, which finances European deep-tech companies and uses artificial intelligence, robotics, synthetic biology, genetics and other technologies to address sustainable nutrition for the growing world population, combating climate change and dealing with an aging population. He is also invested in several global reforestation projects, as well as schemes that support local farmers in sustainable agroforestry projects in countries such as Paraguay and Kenya.


Rosberg is the owner and CEO of Rosberg Xtreme Racing – an Extreme E team dedicated to driving positive change and combatting the effects of climate change. He is further the co-owner of the German vehicle technology company TRE GmbH, one of the leading companies in the field of chassis development. Together with Schaeffler, TRE developed i.a. the intelligent chassis for the electric Schaeffler Mover Shuttle, which was awarded the German Mobility Award in 2019.


Rosberg has been a regular guest at the World Economic Forum in Davos since 2016 and exchanges ideas with key players from politics, business, science and society on the topics of sustainability, mobility and social justice. He is a member of the Forum of Young Global Leaders, a community with the vision, courage and influence to drive positive change.

In 2018, Rosberg was recognized for his commitment to sustainable innovation with the “GreenTec Entrepreneur of the Year” environmental award. A year later, he founded the GREENTECH FESTIVAL, a global platform for innovative and pioneering green technologies. In 2020 Rosberg became a judge in the TV show “Die Höhle der Löwen”, the German version of the BBC’s “Dragon’s Den”, with the aim of promoting sustainable and future-oriented start-ups.
