Dr. Marie Asano on the Start Up the Science Podcast

If you would like to know what an Investment Manager is looking for, this expert episode will most probably pique your interest. 

This month's expert is Dr. Marie Asano, an investment manager at High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF).

HTGF is a public-private venture capital investment firm based in Germany. They are an early stage seed investor, focused on high potential high-tech start-ups. 

In this episode, we ask Marie to explain what aspects of a startup herself and other investors are specifically looking for. Her expertise, of course, is mainly in Chemistry startups but a lot of her advice is universal and can be adapted to any kind of startup. 

Marie is one of our go-to investors whenever we have an Investor's Workshop or Demo Day. Since her educational background is in science (chemistry to be exact), her feedback to our deep tech startups is always relevant and on-point. We appreciate whenever she is able to participate in our events and we are also super thankful that she took time out to speak to us on this podcast.
