Cipio Partners hires Thomas Lenz as Associate. He will support the partnership in deal sourcing, due diligence and portfolio management as well as in more finance-oriented topics such as valuations.
Before joining Cipio Partners, Thomas worked as Investment Manager at Bayern Kapital, one of the most active early-stage investors in Germany. He started his career as Associate at KPMG Strategy Group/ Deal Advisory, where he was promoted to Assistant Manager. Thomas holds a Master of Science in International Business from Copenhagen Business School in Denmark and a dual Bachelor of Science in Economics and Business Administration of University Augsburg in Germany. During his studies he co-founded Smart-am-Phone, an interactive smartphone course for seniors.
Managing Partner Roland Dennert commented: “The European market opportunity for growth stage technology investments has become even more attractive thanks to the recent normalization of valuation levels and we need to expand our team to address that opportunity. Therefore, we are delighted to welcome Thomas, an experienced investment professional, in our growing team.”
