There are different ways to become Partner at a VC firm. The regular way would be to rise through the ranks of the investment team, from Associate, to Manager to Principal to Partner.
Christoph Rösler did not take that regular path. In fact, he approached it from another angle, from the team that helps build and grow companies, our operational team.
Having joined us in 2015, Christoph has held multiple positions within Project A and was an integral part in forming the company’s operational support team. He has founded and led the Sales & Customer Success team, oversaw the entire operational support as Director Venture Development and served Project A as Chief Commercial Officer. He has supported more than 40 of our portfolio companies, from hands-on support like working in a walk-in freezer for a few hours to really understand the logistics processes of a pet food company to boardroom discussions and strategy workshops in our private equity portfolio.
In 2019, he was asked to join the investment team and focus on private equity deals to bring his knowledge on value creation to bear.
That brings us to today, as we are proud to announce that Christoph will join the Project A management as a Partner.
In the last years, Project A has established a successful private equity co-investment practice in addition to its early-stage venture capital activities. We currently have 10 active PE portfolio companies and are planning to add 2–4 investments per year
Christoph will be co-leading the company’s growing Private Equity Investment Practice together with our General Partner Ben Fischer.
We are looking forward to him being responsible for co-investing in buyout and private equity growth transactions with renowned PE funds.
