My expertise is helping our portfolio companies grow post-investment.
I help our founders and CEOs on goal setting, OKRs, talent, and culture from an early-stage, and I work to impact the way they think about and plan for growth.
Working to increase gender and racial diversity in AI and Venture Capital is a passion project of mine.
The politics and ethics of AI and what role we play as investors fascinates me.
Disconnecting from technology helps me see things with fresh eyes.
To unwind, I go hiking in remote mountains, ideally without cell phone reception. I’m an ice climber and one of my happiest states is when I am fully immersed and focused on the ice wall ascent. This state is almost meditative for me.
Let’s build bridges between Silicon Valley and Europe.
I only recently moved to the U.S. — I’m originally from Germany and Luxembourg — and I’m passionate about improving the innovation exchange between the two continents.
