I'm a Computer Scientist living in Berlin. I invest in pre-seed and seed European startups building horizontal algorithm-based global companies. I have done R&D, and I invest in, Algorithms, Machine Learning, Cryptography, Decentralized systems, Databases, Simulations, and more.
With my partners, we are Lunar Ventures, a "Tel-Aviv style VC" investing early across Europe in DeepTech Software. We focus on investments that carry tech risk and build strong defensible technology for large markets. Our goal is to revitalize the original purpose of risk capital — to grow cutting-edge algorithmic innovation into defensible tech-based unicorns.
