VC Associate @ Senovo in Munich, Germany

We’re an early stage venture capital fund with a focus on B2B SaaS Investments. The team at Senovo believes that SaaS should be the dominant model for delivering software and is thrilled about the great market opportunities which are continuously created by this secular shift. Senovo funds outstanding entrepreneurs and/or teams building world class products. We generally engage soon after product launch. We’re a team of 5 complementary investment professionals who love hunting for promising tech-driven startups and helping them scale. We’re a startup ourselves, so joining Senovo means not only working with startups but also building one at the same time.
