Holding a Bachelor’s degree in Business from WHU and a Master’s degree in Economics from Stockholm School of Economics, Jenny enjoys combining these two views - the entrepreneurial and the more data-driven economic view on the startup ecosystem. Before joining EQT Ventures, Jenny gained first hand experience within the startup world from both sides of the table: at startups in Berlin and Sao Paulo and in venture capital at JOIN Capital. For three years, Jenny worked with corporates on innovation and digital business building as a consultant at McKinsey & Company in Berlin.
As a Venture Lead at EQT Ventures, Jenny focuses on investing in, and working with, startups in the DACH region. She is especially excited about products that change societal dynamics – for example in education – and enjoys digging into deep tech or industrial products.
Jenny is constantly listening to podcasts – and even has her own: tabula rasa. There, she discusses the future of education and interviews people working on the cutting-edge of the field. She also loves sailing and swimming (preferably in open water), has a passion for film festivals and theatre and enjoys trying new fitness trends.
