Angelika holds a PhD in biology and has been investing venture capital in biotech, pharma, and life science start-ups for over 10 years. Over the course of her career, she has managed many transactions ranging from seed-stage venture capital and growth financing to licensing agreements, trade sale transactions, and IPOs. Her expertise is also based on her virology-molecular biology research experience. One of her strengths is to combine scientific innovation with commercial potential.

He joined High-Tech Gründerfonds in 2021.

Our special guest is CVC expert Alexander Ehlgen. He joined Boehringer Ingelheim Venture Fund in 2019. He is responsible for Digital Healthcare and Therapeutics investments in Europe and Israel.
