Following this update, I received a lot of questions in private messages and I thought I could answer some of them here.
Luminar Ventures has made 14 investments since 2018. Their latest investments include Greenely (Energy), HiberWorld (Gaming), and Normative (Sustainability Reporting).
An operating partner is a term used by VCs to describe a role dedicated to working with portfolio companies to increase value. In my own words, my role will focus on advising and supporting the portfolio companies with their growth strategy, from organizational structure to hands-on work within user acquisition when needed.
This is a part-time role and I will keep consulting.
(1) An experienced team that I highly respect, that I can learn from, and with whom I share a similar set of values.
(2) An exciting portfolio of companies, where my expertise on growth can have a positive impact.
(3) A flexible setup that allows me to continue with my own projects within consulting, coaching, and education.
I’m not involved in the investment process but please do, I will be happy to forward it to the team (if relevant).
