The Interview
What do you get back personally when you support founders on their journey?

It’s exciting to accompany and support founders in building up their own company and realizing their visions. We are a very active investor, and it's not just a professional but also a personal success when projects we work on together are successful, targets are jointly achieved, and the companies grow sustainably. The close connection to the founders is what distinguishes yabeo and also generates the personal rewards. It's very exciting to work closely with different founding personalities and to help advance their innovative ideas.

Which of your colleagues inspires you the most?

Susanne: As the heart of yabeo, she's always upbeat and helpful while juggling 1000 different topics.
