Niklas Fip

Analyst

Niklas joined Speedinvest Industry in December 2018 and is based in our Vienna office.

Born in an industrial suburb of the Ruhr Valley, a highly urbanized region in Germany, Niklas inevitably encountered the old economy very early. Having developed a strong passion for technologies, he first gained professional experience in the energy industry, from gas extraction projects in Russia to commodity trading in Switzerland, and later gained insights in the agile environment of an early-stage startup in Vienna.

Torn between the startup ecosystem and the industrial world, he graduated in Finance & Entrepreneurship from WU Wien, where he also conducted research on investment decisions, and later decided to do his masters in Industrial Engineering and Management.

Outside the office, Niklas loves to meet new people, is fascinated by history and astronomy and as a former handball player, enjoys all kind of team-sports. Passionate about piano and guitar, he enjoys composing songs and listening to all-kind of music.
