Born and raised in Cologne, David's cheerful Rhenish spirit gives him a passion and enthusiasm for new ideas. His interest in innovation led him to HV, where he channels his curiosity towards growing successful companies and teams.
David holds a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from WHU-Otto Beisheim School of Management. During his studies, he founded a promotion agency and played team handball at a professional level.
Living by the words of his former coach: "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose." David looks for teams who build winning companies that make a lasting impact. Every team needs clear eyes to know exactly who you are, what you do, and who you serve. With full hearts, your employees run through walls for you and run even harder through walls for your customers. Ultimately if you give it all and play like a champion you can`t lose.
David started his VC career at Acton Capital Partners, where he invested in Europe and the US. Before Acton, he did an internship at New York-based D2C brand Koio, which ultimately ended up being his first VC investment. He joined HV in March 2020.
Outside of work David enjoys long walks with his dog, Fawkes, riding his beloved old Vespa and clearing his mind in the gym.
CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS, CAN'T LOSE.
