Featured Companies

Blutsgeschwister

This German fashion label has been providing individualistic women with the means to express themselves through their clothing for over a decade. A strong, loyal customer base and a dedicated designer who creates trends rather than following them are what drew me to Blutgeschwister.

Eduvee

A brand new way to learn online, making education available to everyone regardless of their financial situation. I invested in Eduvee because I believe access to quality education is one of the most important fundamental rights, and their approach to online learning has the potential to change the lives of many who badly need it.

Rheingau Founders

A professional co-founder for internet and mobile businesses that helps exciting new media startups get off the ground quicker and more efficient; it's the ideas of guys like these that make Berlin such an exciting place to work. Our common experiences with investing helped us build a level of trust that every great business relationship needs – like a good marriage but with way more sex.

WHO AM I LOOKING FOR?

Generally i’m interested in fashion labels and scalable online-businesses, mainly in the seed and start-up phase and in the realms of education, mobile, payment, SaaS and tech.

People who are solving
important problems
Creative Geniuses who
follow through with ideas
People who think big
and think differently
People with a bucketload
of experience
Hip fashion labels looking
to grow or to restructure
People who can handle a
beer or two

What if I'm a creepy weirdo?


Don't worry, I'm not. But don't just take my word for it.
Here's what some of my previous companies have said about me.

“Rouven is a great partner with deep understanding and passion for the products themselves. He challenges the status quo and helps make our products and sales activities better. I especially like working with Rouven because he is always at eye level with me and my employees.”

Dr Stephan Künz, CEO, Blutgeschwister
“As a young company, we were very happy to partner with Rouven. He believed in me and my team from the beginning, and his knowledge of financing, term sheets and all the legal stuff related to funding helped me a lot in growing my company and taking on further investors in the right way.”

Lasse Clausen, CEO, Foundd

Entrepreneur, Investor, Backgammon fanatic

I founded my first start-up in the early days of location-based services and learned the private equity and venture capital business through working at a globally operating entrepreneur and investor and at Capnamic Ventures. Before my internet and fashion journey started, I did Financial Risk Management for KPMG and looked into companies like Credit Suisse and Curacyte, a biotech start-up.
"It’s all about skill and strategy"
I obtained a degree in Business Administration from EBS Business School. I live in Berlin and in my spare time I love handling any vehicle with an engine and playing backgammon. Just like entrepreneurship and investing, backgammon is all about skill, strategy, patient forward planning and a pinch of luck.
Integrity and courage are the two most important values for me. I always strive to live up to my values, and I expect the same from my business partners.
"I want to see you succeed"
Still, it is the entrepreneurs like YOU that fascinate me, especially if you dare to think out of the box and do something different than all the other entrepreneurs out there. I want to see you succeed, so I bring more than just money to my portfolio companies; with my experience and industry contacts, I can make the difference and contribute to our common success.
