Konstantin Bender

Investment Team

What brought you to Redstone and when did you start?

Eager to work with ambitious founders who take on the biggest challenges of our times, I found my way into venture via an internship at Speedinvest in my hometown Vienna. After short stints in the consulting and automotive industry, I joined Redstone in 2021 to continue my journey in VC.

What are your main responsibilities in the team?

Focusing on and driving our Built World and ClimateTech strategies, I have the chance to work with founders within the PropTech, ConstructionTech, and EnergyTech space. My responsibilities include sourcing, deal-making, and portfolio management.

What innovation will change the future in a positive way?

Carbon-neutral buildings. Achieving carbon-neutral buildings is essential but, in my eyes, still an overlooked lever towards reaching net-zero carbon emissions, which is necessary to mitigate the effects of climate change.

How do you relax/clear your mind?

Spending time in the mountains (preferably on skis) & going for a run in the streets of Berlin.

Whats your favorite lifehack to share? 

When in doubt, look up and read Theodore Roosevelt's "The Man in the Arena".
