Before joining PreSeed Ventures, Niels spent several years building up an impressive career, starting with a PhD in software engineering from DTU. After this, he was appointed the CTO of a corporate venture at Siemens in Germany where he realised that his interest lay in building companies from the ground up – not in corporate politics. Niels joined a couple of Danish consumer internet startups as CTO, experienced the bubble first hand and transitioned to a more commercial role.

Just prior to joining PreSeed Ventures, Niels and his family sailed around the world in a small yacht – an experience that he often describes as his own little startup.
