I am thrilled by new businesses that disrupt established industries and advance our society. The challenge of entrepreneurs to understand technology, markets and society in order to shape the future fascinates me. I strive to address this challenge from different angles during my career.
As an economist by training (London School of Economics), I very much enjoyed to shape corporate strategies in the high-tech and energy sector at McKinsey. During my PhD on Energy Storage in Zurich (ETH) I discovered my passion for technological innovation. When I was responsible for the CASE portfolio (Connectivity, Autonomous, Service, Electrification) at Daimler I developed corporate venture strategy, prepared investment decisions, and supported start-ups. During this time we invested for instance in Chargepoint, Turo, Anagog and Volocopter. Yet I also value the societal aspect of entrepreneurship. This is why I worked as coach for startsocial and ETH pioneer fellowship.
I love working with founders that are driven by the ambition to move the world. As investor, I see myself as a passionate partner of entrepreneurs actively supporting them wherever possible – and I am looking forward to engage with you in this endeavour.
