Dr. Christian Reitberger
Christian Reitberger has worked with btov since 2008 – initially as a Member of the Investorenkreis and a lead investor on numerous deep tech transactions. He joined the Industrial Tech Fund as a Partner in April 2018.
In 1995 Christian graduated in Physics with a doctorate sub auspiciis praesidentis from Vienna University. 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. In 2009, he joined pan European venture capitalist Wellington Partners and helped to build the portfolio in electronics, resource efficiency and computer vision companies. He still holds portfolio responsibility for a number of companies in the Wellington portfolio.
Christian focuses his investment activities on electronics & photonics, resource efficiency and industrial AI 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, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology and econophysics.
