Dr. Alexander Buchberger

Partner

As an optimist at heart I am excited about supporting ambitious founders. With more than ten years of VC experience, I have profound knowledge in scaling businesses and love working on marketing and sales with our portfolio companies.

After studying technology management in Munich and Sydney, I passed my PhD in start-up risk assessment from WHU Otto-Beisheim School of Management. I gained my professional experience working first at startups and later at a corporate VC. As a Partner and Co-Founder at Senovo, I focus primarily on process-optimization software solutions.

In my freetime, I am a passionate pilot and enjoy fitness and hiking.

Companies include:
Riskmethods, shyftplan, Veact, Atheneum (exit) and Orpheus (exit)

Frederick Mallinckrodt

Partner

I am fascinated by the power of innovation and how fresh ideas paired with courageous entrepreneurs can turn entire markets upside down. With 10 years of investment experience I am aware of the do’s and don’ts of early-stage SaaS companies.

Having worked as a business trainee at Siemens and as a PE/M&A lawyer in Washington D.C. and Munich I am all too familiar with the disruptive nature of ambitious startups. I jumped into the VC space and co-founded Senovo in 2011.

As a father of three, I enjoy taking my family on bicycle tours and ski rides to the Bavarian alps.

Companies include:
Anyline, Customer Alliance, Holidu and Smartlaw (exit)

Lucas Behem

Associate

I am passionate about working with founders who make a dent in tomorrow's world and supporting hands-on to realize their vision. With an affection for numbers and data, I especially enjoy turning early-stage companies into data-driven powerhouses.

Taking part in scaling two fast-growing startups early in my career, I experienced first-hand what can be achieved with courage, dedication and team play. I studied Business and Finance at Bocconi University in Milan and Maastricht University.

Outside of the office I like to spend time in nature or on a sailing boat.

Companies include:
IP Fabric, HiveMQ, Hello Customer, IamIP

I have 20 years of experience in the software industry. Before my first VC investments in SaaS startups in 2011, I had a decade of operating experience in software development, systems integration and IT strategy, mostly for blue chip companies. I hold a MSc in computer science, a MBA from University of Cambridge and am a Partner at Senovo.

I love deep tech and enterprise products and particularly like to work with founders who have deep domain expertise.

Outside of work you can usually find me on a mountain bike barrelling down steep downhill trails.

I joined Senovo to partner with vision-driven entrepreneurs on their journey to reshape entire industries. At the moment, I am particularly enthusiastic about Industry 4.0, HealthTech and data-enabled solutions in Supply Chain and Procurement. Having lived in Spain for two years, I also have a big heart for the Iberian startup scene.

Previously, I worked as a management consultant specializing in digital growth strategies and M&A. I studied International Business in London and hold an MBA from IE Business School.

Besides being a big foodie and avid traveller, I enjoy supporting initiatives linked to entrepreneurship, technology and diversity. I am the Female Founders Ambassador for Germany, Grow F Mentor and started a Women in VC meetup in Munich. Reach out if you’d like to join.

I am a tech & startup enthusiast and believe that entrepreneurs are the catalysts of positive change. My excitement and enthusiasm to contribute to new ideas, challenges and opportunities motivates me every day.

Doing my masters in Management & Technology at the Technical University Munich I combine my passions for emerging technological megatrends and the business world.
Furthermore, I gained first entrepreneurial experience during my exchange semester in China and in a digital business incubator.

Apart from work I am a passionate kitesurfer and skier and enjoy playing football and tennis.

Mike Siebert

Partner

I am enthralled by the creativity and innovation of founders and their sheer enthusiasm. Having been both, founder/CXO and VC, I know the ins and outs of value creation and investing.

I studied Business Administration at Cologne University and ESCP from where I graduated with a Master’s thesis on game theory for exit decisions of European VCs. Upon graduation I spent 20 years with various PE-houses, investment banks and (own) start-ups.

Besides work I love to spend time with my family, play basketball, board on a stand up paddle or watch my beloved Los Angeles Lakers.

Companies include:
Atheneum (exit), givve (exit), Veact
