The Interview
What fascinates you about the VC Investment Business?

Venture Capital has a very entrepreneurial culture and a pronounced hands-on mentality. You work mostly with young, creative and motivated people, can observe how organizations develop quickly (both positively and negatively) and keep your finger on the pulse of our times.

What technological invention would you personally like to see the most?

Recent events have shown once again that climate change is a reality, and that this development is accelerating rapidly. The consequences affect all living beings in many different ways. Here, a lot has happened in people’s consciousness in recent months, and the topic is very high on the social agenda...essential evolutionary steps of mankind. However, I ask myself whether this is enough; a sober look at the available numbers doesn't exactly boost my optimism. So I'd like to see (technological) solutions that counteract climate change in particular and help us to live in a resource-conserving and sustainable way.
