We are a Team of SaaS specialists investing in the next generation of B2B software category leaders
Dr. Alexander Buchberger
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.

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.

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.

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. I am particularly enthusiastic about supporting founders during their transition from founder-led sales to a scalable sales organization. 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 excited about helping startups thrive and support them on their journey to create positive change in the world.
Before joining Senovo, I worked in I management consulting as a Data Scientist. I hold a M.Sc. in Statistics from ETH Zurich and a B.Sc. in Mathematics from FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg.
Besides work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, doing sports (mostly running and swimming) and reading. I am also actively volunteering in animal welfare.
