High Rise Ventures
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Claudia Nagel is CEO of High Rise Ventures, a company builder based in Berlin that focuses on the "future of living": how will people live and interact with spaces in the future? For the most part, the portfolio companies come from the "prop(erty) tech" sector, although PlugVan, with its focus on "mobile" rather than "immobile" spaces, is currently still rather exotic. She and her team support technology startups with capital and, most importantly, expertise. In addition to her work as CEO, Claudia holds a professorship in industrial engineering at BBW Hochschule in Berlin.
After studying physics, Kai Schaeffer and his brother built up Berlin-based Schaeffer AG with its US subsidiary Front Panel Express - an Industry 4.0 company for customized front panels, primarily for electronics applications. For a few years now, their business success has given them the opportunity to invest in other companies with Schaeffer AG, including the sustainable concept of PlugVan. We got in contact through the Business Angels Club Berlin-Brandenburg e.V.
Suman Rewari studied mechanical engineering and has lived in Berlin since 1972, where he worked internationally for a Berlin-based mechanical engineering company for many years. As a career changer and successful managing director of a Berlin hotel and TUI travel center, he now supports future-oriented start-ups with his investment company and know-how. The sustainable concept of PlugVan was immediately an interesting combination of the fields of technology and tourism for him. Suman is involved in various organizations in Berlin, including the Business Angels Club Berlin-Brandenburg e.V., were we got in contact.
