Andy Schwarzenbrunner Speedinvest Principal

Andreas Schwarzenbrunner

Associate Partner

Andreas has an eye for promising ideas and would (if he had the time!) be willing to start a new business every two weeks. As a former policy adviser in the Austrian Parliament, he not only developed an insatiable passion for politics, but also profound expertise on different economic and technological affairs. One of his professional passions is supporting the old economy in its digital transition.

“What drives me most is my desire to try out new things. Good things happen when you don’t plan them. I love interesting people with unlimited ideas and an eye for the bigger picture.”

At Speedinvest, Andreas is dedicated to identifying the right Industrial Tech investments. He has been working and living in Munich, San Francisco, London, Sydney and Vienna, mentors students startup projects, and has regular lectures at universities and panels at international events. Andreas is thus inspiring people in multiple ways: as a city council member in his Viennese home district, he is convinced that engaging in different fields and activities helps you see the broader picture.
