Philip Specht Speedinvest Senior Associate

Philip Specht

Principal

Philip started his career as a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group, where he worked in various industries and also set up a social venture of BCG. Later he helped with the successful market launch and scaling of a VC funded start-up as CCO of the company.

Right before joining Speedinvest x, Philip wrote a book about “the 50 most important topics of digitization”. His book aims to help people who are less familiar with the digital space to better understand some of the most fascinating aspects and most pressing challenges of our time.

“Being founder-friendly, providing the best support for your startup, and seeing your idea become a big economic castle protected by unbreachable ‘moats’ is our ambition at Speedinvest x.”

At Speedinvest, Philip works from the Munich office, but also regularly spends time in the UK, Spain and France. He takes care of six of our portfolio companies, most notably supporting Tier Mobility from day one – probably the fastest-growing European start-up in 2019. In terms of investment focus, Philip has an especially keen interest in start-ups with a greentech/cleantech angle.
