Our Faces & Stories
With over 12 years of experience in corporate innovation, venture building, and venture capital having worked with tech startups in Europe, Silicon Valley, and Israel, I am leading today the global corporate-startup collaboration activities at TechFounders. Previously, I was the EU Director and Climate Tech Chair at Alchemist Accelerator, the leading enterprise accelerator in Silicon Valley, where I led over 30 European deep-tech investments and supported startups to enter the US market and scale globally.
Prior to my current position, I hold various roles at Siemens in M&A, Digital Consulting, and Operational Strategy while putting customer-centricity at the core. With my 15+ years of professional experience as an innovation expert, I am responsible at TechFounders for fostering successful cooperation between start-ups and corporates to maximize the potential of digital technologies and supporting companies to keep their competitive advantage. In addition, I serve as Director of Operations for the RESPOND Accelerator.
Corporate Venture & Innovation Manager
During and after my studies of Management & Technology at TUM I worked in business development of start-ups, as well as innovation management and strategy consulting of corporations. With these insights into both worlds – young start-ups and established companies – I will boost their collaboration at TechFounders.
Program & Event Manager
Having long-standing experience in managing programs to foster innovation, such as the Austrian National Innovation Award as well as international projects to support startups and SMEs in the fields of digitalization and creative industries, I’m now responsible for the management of the TechFounders program. Doing so, I strive to make sure that it helps the startups on their way to success and provides real added value for all parties involved.
Marketing & PR Manager
With a background in communication sciences, I drive TechFounders' marketing, branding, and PR activities with a strong focus on user analytics, online campaigning, search engine optimization, and visual storytelling. Working in an environment that encourages change boosts my creativity and my handwork can be seen in the design of our new website and online & offline graphics.
As a Venture Associate for TechFounders, I am responsible of the scouting and evaluation of start-ups applying to our program. Prior to joining TechFounders, I worked for another accelerator operating in Barcelona where I carried out scouting & evaluation of start-ups and portfolio management duties. In addition o my career experience, I hold a Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship, Venture Capital, and Private Equity.
I was always intrigued by the start-up and tech ecosystem, so after completing my master's studies at Nova SBE, I decided to pursue a career in Marketing with an internship at TechFounders. Now, I have the opportunity to operate within a wide range of tasks, going from branding to content creation and social media management.
