As an active early-stage investor, she has invested in 40 start-ups worldwide and is also Managing Director of Quake Europe, where she led the 5G Accelerator Program in partnership with Deutsche Telekom and RTL.

Welcome to the DueDash Investor Lounge, your place to learn what investors really want and how to win them for your startup! Fundraising is a challenging activity for most founders. Especially as most founders misunderstand that fundraising is actually a process. So a more adequate term is investor relations. And here the questions only start. What do investors want? How do I excite them about my product company? How do I continuously nurture investor relationships? What makes them say YES! and which red flags do you need to avoid? This and more we will discuss in DueDash's Investor Lounge. Every month, we are inviting high-profile investors and successful startup founders from around the globe to uncover their thoughts, experience, and ideas on startup investments.
