Stefano Saeger

Investment Manager, Helvetia Venture Fund

Stefano joined btov Partners in 2019 after previously working for ABB, a Swiss-Swedish tech company. There, he worked for the corporation’s VC arm, which also included a couple-of-months stint in Silicon Valley. An invaluable experience given his current role as Investment Manager at the Helvetia Venture Fund.

Graduating from St. Gallen and Johannesburg, Stefano is as enthusiastic about playing tennis as he is watching football and enjoying good food.

I love witnessing the enthusiasm in the eyes of the founders when they talk about their projects or companies.
