Eric Bartha, as SeedBlink’s Head of Investment Management, will be spearheading the DACH market entry. His role revolves around finding ambitious founders that are looking to add a European community of investors in their VC fundraising journey, as well as connect with local partners and family offices.

It also provides a unique opportunity to further collaborate with local VCs, business angels’ groups, and family offices to leverage the dynamism of the German-speaking economy, with a focus on DeepTech and Life Sciences.
