As a member of the investment team at Summa, I will be focusing on investments within the Changing Demographics theme, generating and sourcing new opportunities and serving as a committed partner for the portfolio companies and their people alongside the ever-exciting growth trajectories.

Being part of Summa is both humbling and exhilarating. It is rare to come across such a group of extremely talented and engaged individuals working towards a common purpose, to which I am grateful to contribute.

I have always been a firm believer of the power of innovation in biological sciences and technology to impact some of today’s and tomorrow’s societal challenges within and beyond the healthcare domain. We therefore need to support those innovative companies contributing to that mission. Before joining Summa, I managed the life science activities for a leading European family office investing with a people-planet-profit bottom-line, including the foundation of the OMX Venture fund franchise. After stints in investment banking and biotech, I complemented my initial studies in Economics with a Bioengineering degree.
