Philipp Werner

Investment Team

What brought you to Redstone and when did you start?

My deep interest in startups and the venture ecosystem can be traced back to my time at my Alma Mater, WHU, where I was not only organizing the IdeaLab (Europe’s leading student-led startup conference) but also engaging with the entrepreneurial network (connecting founders with potential investors) from the early beginnings. By joining the Berlin-based venture capital fund Redstone in 2018, I made my personal interest my daily profession.

What are your main responsibilities in the team?

Forming relationships with entrepreneurs and investing in FinTech and B2B internet companies while guiding portfolio companies in growth-related topics such as fundraising, operations, and hiring processes.

What innovation will change the future in a positive way?

Carbon capture and storage technologies combined with (green) financial solutions.

How do you relax/clear your mind?

I unwind by doing a lot of sports (from skiing high up in the mountains to playing football or basketball in the streets of Berlin), exploring new places, or sitting somewhere outside with friends enjoying the sun.

Whats your favorite lifehack to share? 

Stay curious - go out, talk to people, get out of your comfort zone, and challenge your knowledge regularly.
