Two members of the Seed Team get promoted!
Alison has been promoted from Senior Associate to Principal and Finn has gone from Analyst to Associate, both promotions are richly deserved and they represent the success these two have brought to the Seed Fund.
Alison joined Partech in the summer of 2018 and since then she has done nothing but impress. Throughout her time managing the Paris Saclay Seed fund, she has led investments in Ambler, Epsor, Joko, Lalilo, Energysquare and 77foods seed rounds. Through investments such as these Alison has been asked to sit on the board of 11 of the Paris Saclay Seed Fund portolio companies. This is testament to the great relationships she creates. Before joining Partech, Alison had been a Senior Consultant at Roland Berger for 4 years where she conducted various projects, from private equity deals to big data & data infrastructure projects. She holds a Master of Engineering from Ecole Centrale Paris and studied Data Science at Ecole Polytechnique.
Finn joined Partech in September 2018 and works in our Berlin Office, focusing on Seed Investments. Finn is pivotal in creating connections with founders in the DACH region and continues to improve our stature in that area of Europe. Finn has a wealth of different experience in the financial world, including in operational finance at Amazon in Munich. Before that, he spent some time with Global Founders Capital in Berlin and the Investment banking division of Morgan Stanley in Frankfurt. He graduated from Technical University of Munich – TUM – for a Master's degree combining Finance and Computer Science.
Seed Fund Congratulations
The promotions are creating excitement amongst the team as Romain Lavault, General Partner, comments:
“Alison embodies one of the defining characteristics that we are also looking in founders: passion. She is dedicated to the founders from her portfolio, and always available to support them. Partech is proud to have seen her quickly establish herself a reference partner to the founders in the French ecosystem. Her natural energy and tenacity are beneficial not only to the founders but to all of us working with her on a daily basis.”
“Finn has been instrumental in representing Partech in Berlin and in proactively connecting with Founders throughout the DACH region. We are happy to see his role growing at Partech and look forward to many more investments in the DACH region, as well as Nordics and CEE” said Romain Lavault, General Partner at Partech.
