michael has two daughters and enjoys sports, and working in the garden. after all, he likes to see his undertakings grow and bear fruit.

michael sees venture capital as an indispensable driver of the future economy. “statistics shows that companies older than five years cumulatively don't create jobs anymore,” he says. “job growth comes from young companies.” and that means from startups with visionary founders.

after completing his ph.d. in molecular biology, michael realized that his interests were much broader, leading him to join the boston consulting group. during the dotcom bubble, he took his first steps as an angel investor. “i lost more money than I gained, but that only heightened my enthusiasm for startups”. in 2003 he joined prionics, one of the early swiss role-model startups. he eventually shifted to focus entirely on venture capital as it combines all of his passions: “firstly, science, innovation, and technology; secondly, entrepreneurship; and thirdly, the financial world.”

“isn't it incredible to experience how an idea develops into an enterprise? founders typically start with nothing more than a story and a vision that has to be convincing enough to inspire investors and employees to believe in them.”
