Niklas joined the investment team in 2015 and again in 2019. Between his two stints at Activant, Niklas scratched his itch to build and operate, working at Turvo as a product manager on mobile applications and marketplaces. He is fascinated by the "invisible" industries that work behind the scenes to make the economy run, and enjoys working with technology that allows these fundamental industries to find operating efficiency and evolved business models. Specifically, he is involved with logistics, enterprise financial technology and B2B marketplaces.
Niklas' experience on the ground floor of some of the most ambitious startups in the world has taught him the power of people and product. He brings that passion to the Activant portfolio, spending his time on refining HR process and growth strategy. He also supports international expansion, leveraging his connection to Europe.
Privately, Niklas likes to spend his time reading, doing skeleton, or racing second-hand cars. He graduated from Harvard University with a BA in Economics.
