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 have over 15 years of experience in finance. I started my career in banking where I created investment products for family offices and (U)HNWI’s. Later, I worked as an entrepreneur and helped early-stage companies raise funding from Europe’s top investors.
At Senovo, I leverage the above and work closely with our limited partners and portfolio companies on all matters related to fundraising.
While not working, or playing with my three children, I mostly spend my time boxing, in the gym or reading.
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.

My passion for innovation, especially in disruptive technologies in that can solve nowadays problems has motivated me to deep dive in the VC world.
Before joining Senovo, I had worked as the sell-side associate in the M&A advisory firm then became a senior business development in one of leading B2B-startup focused accelerators in Vietnam. I really enjoy working with founders, listening to their stories behind businesses and employing my insights as well as networks to support them.
I graduated from UCL in BSc Mathematics and Management studies and currently pursuing MSc Economics and Finance in HSRW.
Besides work, I spend most of my time on travelling to different places and enjoying exploring cultures.
