Oliver Holle – CEO, Managing Partner at Speedinvest
Oliver founded his first tech startup as a university student in 1997, long before “mobile,” “entrepreneur” and “startup” were mainstream terms in Europe. In 2003, he pivoted his company from interactive simulations to mobile content distribution, merging it into 3united AG to become a leader and innovator in the mobile content space. After a successful exit to Verisign in 2006 and several years in Silicon Valley, he returned to Austria with the goal to establish a different, much more operationally focused type of VC model for European founders. In 2011, Speedinvest launched with its first €10M fund.
Today, Speedinvest is one of Europe’s leading venture funds with more than €400M in capital, several successful exits and a portfolio of more than 150 companies, including notable success stories such as Bitmovin, Wefox, Tier, Billie, Curve and Tourradar. Oliver continues to be dedicated to revolutionising European venture capital, and Speedinvest continues to grow. With offices in Vienna, San Francisco, London, Berlin, Paris and Munich, Speedinvest’s 40+ person investment team targets Deep Tech, Fintech, Marketplaces, Industrial Tech and Healthtech startups.
