Senovo – Team

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.

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

Frederick Mallinckrodt


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


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

Markus Grundmann


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.

Companies include:
Quantilope, Manta, tado, Falcon.io (exit)

Mona Müller


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.

Companies include:
Anyline, Archlet, OpenAsApp, Synfioo

Mike Siebert

Venture 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

Michel Schimpf


I am enthusiastic about taking part in shaping the future. Senovo enables me to do this by creating an environment where I can work with exciting and disruptive start-ups.

Before joining Senovo, I studied Computer Science at the Technical University of Munich with Psychology as a minor. I built and led a social start-up in Colombia, worked in M&A, and in software engineering at BMW.

In my spare time, I love to read and do mixed martial arts.
