Hi, I’m Benjamin 👋
I’m an Associate at Lunar Ventures, helping technical founders to turn their sci-fi vision into reality 🚀
We invest pre-revenue at pre-seed/seed stage in computer science moonshots e.g. in cryptography, machine learning, databases, developer tools, and much more.
If you’re a technical founder whose struggle is to explain your vision to investors, we set up a fund for you. Please contact me on LinkedIn or via email: email@example.com (professional matters) or firstname.lastname@example.org (private matters).
Before joining Lunar, I completed my Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the age of 24, wrote two books about education, and I am bootstrapping a publishing house: Visual Ink Publishing.
I love traveling, reading, writing, and photography, and I am writing blog on Startups Shaping the Future of Computing
I’m this fall traveling to a couple of startup conferences – let me know if you’d like a catch-up at any of those:
05 – 08/10/2022 Infoshare 2022 | Gdansk, Poland
11 + 12/10/2022 Nordic Deep Tech Business Summit 2022 | Helsinki, Finnland
