Lars Haerle

CFO/COO, Partner

What brought you to Redstone and when did you start?

Before joining Redstone, I was an investment banker in M&A for more than 20 years. Young startup companies are changing the world, and venture capital is a much better choice than M&A. The decisive factor for Redstone are the people and the culture you would like to work with. And I wanted to work with Samuli. In fact, the best idea I ever had.

What are your main responsibilities in the team?

I am the CFO and COO of the company. My responsibilities are to make Redstone smarter, more efficient, and forward-looking every day. I am grateful for having the best team for this. In addition, I also manage the Venture portfolio of the family office of Schwarzwälder Bote.

What innovation will change the future in a positive way?

Everything which has not been invented now but is already used in Star Trek (I would love to see the Warp Drive).

How do you relax/clear your mind?

My secret is a well-balanced combination of FSM: My lovely family, sports which I really enjoy, like golf and diving, and music, as I am a passionate jazz piano player.

Whats your favorite lifehack to share? 

The other perspective may hold equal value to yours.
