Dr. Christian Reitberger
In 1994 Christian Reitberger graduated in Physics with a doctorate sub auspiciis praesidentis from Vienna University on a topic from mathematical quantum field theory. After stints at CERN and at industry labs he complemented his science tools with business tools at McKinsey, where he advised clients until 1999 in the areas of telecommunications, electronics, digital media and biotechnology in questions of strategy, operations as well as post-merger management; he also was a founding member of the Private Equity Practice.
This led him to Apax Partners where he spent nine years, and was responsible most recently as a Partner for technology investments in Europe, ranging from venture to growth to buyout investments until 2008. Since 2009, he is a Partner at pan European venture capitalist Wellington Partners with a portfolio in electronics, cleantech and digital media companies.
Christian focuses his private investment activities on resource efficiency and electronics investments that have the potential to improve the state of the world in a sustainable and significant way. And since at heart he still is a (crypto)scientist he also manages a way too broad portfolio of scientific interests in physics, mathematics and artificial intelligence.
