A little more than a year later I have decided to join venture investor session.vc - here are the three most important reasons why:
1. The session.vc approach
At session.vc, entrepreneurs invest in other entrepreneurs. I have not experienced any other VC fund that can provide such hands-on support and brings in experience in all areas from pre-seed to IPO. At session.vc, the partners combine more than half a century of experience in building their own successful companies - with all the beautiful, and not so beautiful learning experiences that one gains along the way. In addition the capital we invest comes primarily from the partners and from other successful entrepreneurs.
2. My love for startups
I love building companies and working with great people. That's exactly what I can do at session.vc: I help companies and founder teams grow by sharing my experience from more than 15 years of entrepreneurship. And we at session.vc have only just started and have the ambition to build a leading early stage VC fund, offering real hands-on support from successful entrepreneurs who have done it before. So I am excited to contribute to session.vc’ growth and to the whole startup ecosystem.
3. The team
Martin and Philippe, the two founders of session.vc were my first angel investors at bexio. They taught me how important it is to have the right investors on board as an early-stage startup. I can say that we would not have developed bexio so successfully without them. Martin, who was Chairman of bexio for many years, was an incredibly great mentor. So I am very happy to work with Martin and Philippe again.
