Michael Schuster Managing Partner Co-Founder Speedinvest

Michael Schuster

Founding Partner

Michael enjoys when ideas come alive, develop and grow. As a Speedinvest Co-Founder and Partner, he believes that helping entrepreneurs make their dreams come true is the “dent” that investors can make in the universe. For a decade, Michael worked in the IT industry, riding the startup roller coaster on a daily basis. Building enterprise software and media startups, ranging from semantic technologies for collaboration to social media monitoring, left a lasting impression.

“Good teams are like a band: together they sound better and when you are on stage, it feels like magic. Working to get the best “sound” possible and creating meaningful music is a wonderful experience.

Michael worked on the next generation of online banking and built the first commercial bloghoster in Europe. His background in Computer Science and Economics and Business Administration enables him to work effectively with startup teams and founders to get their product ready for prime time, address customers early in the life cycle and build outstanding teams.
