Investment Director

Ute Mercker

As a child, what did you want to become when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a writer. Books are still a great source of inspiration and a true place of relaxation for me, and this fascination has now extended to podcasts. 

Why did you become an investment manager?

As a VC investor, I can ideally combine my interests in startups, new technologies and corporate finance with my love for my home town.

What makes a good founder for you?

A good founder convinces me with a clear vision for his product and the associated customer benefit, but can still adapt flexibly to the constantly changing market and competitive environment.
