Lukas André

Managing Partner Switzerland

What brought you to Redstone and when did you start?

I started my career as a startup founder in the early internet days and later moved to the investor side by joining a small investment and investment boutique in Zurich and Geneva. In 2016, when I thought about building my own VC company, I got in touch with Samuli, and we decided to build the activities in Switzerland together.

What are your main responsibilities in the team?

I am responsible for our activities in Switzerland.

What innovation will change the future in a positive way?

With the availability of Quantum Computers, we will enter a new decade: Quantum Computing could be used to optimize complex logistics and supply chain management, reducing waste and increasing resource efficiency. Or they could help to simulate and analyze complex chemical interactions, leading to the discovery of new drugs and therapies and essentially abolishing animal testing.

How do you relax/clear your mind?

Observing the world from above in a hot air balloon.

Whats your favorite lifehack to share? 

If you dig deep enough, every industry and topic gets interesting.
