About me

I am a growth capital investor and a partner at the investment firm LeadX Capital Partners.

Each year, I look at hundreds of tech companies that want to raise capital in order to accelerate growth. I see patterns in companies that fail and companies that succeed. 

My respective growth expertise and knowledge deriving from more than 16 years in Private Equity and Venture Capital have gone into FastScaling, my growth handbook for founders.

Prior to joining LeadX Capital Partners where I built one of the largest European portfolios of B2B tech companies active in consumer industries, I was a lawyer and partner at reputable German business law firms.

My articles on Venture Capital and M&A have been published by renowned magazines like the MIT Sloan Management Review.

I received a Ph.D. in Law from the University of Cologne and hold a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from INSEAD Business School.

I live with my wife and children in Cologne, Germany.
