What I love

I love digging out and playing old school electronic music tunes. House music emerged in the late 80s, when DJs understood they could sample their favorite disco songs to create endless variations and to move entire crowds. Most of the music created at the time was never commercially successful but was wildly rich, musically. The search for these forgotten gems of the past has kept me busy for more than 10 years now.

My journey started with robots

I’ve always been passionate about new technologies and entrepreneurship, from building small robots in my parents’ living room at the age of eight, to failing at my first digital health startup fifteen years later. Since then, I’ve become obsessed by understanding how to build lasting and impactful innovation, and what it takes to build it from a human perspective.

Entrepreneurs need a lot of energy

I started an electronic music label with my friends in 2016, and this project has been a significant part of my life since then. As a small organisation with limited resources in a competitive field, we dedicate a huge amount of energy to convincing partners and rolling out the best events for our community. This is a good reminder that it’s complex to kickstart a startup or a project, and helps me welcome entrepreneurs with an open and non-judging mindset.

I look for the outliers

I enjoy meeting passionate and visionary entrepreneurs every week, and helping them grow their company to its full potential. Scaling a start-up is about growing exponentially, which is an outlying path from an economic point of view. Thus, investing in startups is about finding outliers, from human and technology points of view. This is really what I love about being an investor.
