An truly entrepreneurial approach tailored to different sitations
Seed, build & grow
I have built and invested into Tech-Startups since 1999. I love working with inspiring, talented entrepreneurs from the very early stages through to maturity. This is a win-win relationship if I can add value with my >20 years start-up experience and extensive network beyond a mere cash investment.
I have acquired and actively turned around businesses in special situations since 2016:
Turnaround / Distressed
I love building companies - and Special Situations are just another way of doing that. I believe in leveraging a strong asset, like a strong brand, technology or team - while recognising that the current trajectory of an undervalued business needs to be changed.
I am a long-term partner for companies in all stages. I support several portfolio companies in a board or advisory board capacity or - in select cases - as external consultant for strategic challenges. From the bootstrapped start-up to public companies or PE-funds.
These days I am very focused on the HR-Tech and Education Space - in which I typically bring along a strong network of HR-Tech Angels.
I also have some experience in Mobile-Apps, Sex-Tech, Craft-Beer and Travel-Tech.
