In this week’s episode Britta Weddeling, Bits & Pretzels’ editor in chief, talks to Hendrik Brandis, co-founder and partner at Earlybird, a venture capital firm focused on European technology companies. Hendrik has been investing in startups for 23 years and recently made his largest exit ever when Turkish game developer Peak Games sold to Zynga for 1.8 billion dollar. The experienced investor explains why the next big wave of startup innovation is happening in the deep tech space, meaning companies funded based on a scientific breakthrough & likely to change the world, such as AI, space, biotech or quantum computing. The aerospace engineer turned VC also talks about why space is becoming the next mega platform for services & new technologies, e.g. with satellites providing 5G internet connection or Voice-over-IP broadband – and why Munich is the place to be for entrepreneurs right now.
