4th Reimann Investors Portfolio Day

Nov 23, 2022

In mid-October, we once again opened our doors for a personal exchange or a first meeting between our investors, interested parties and founders on the occasion of our 4th Reimann Investors Portfolio Day.

We were delighted to welcome around 60 participants again this year, this time in a spectacular premium event location at a height of 45 metres. In addition to our founders and managing directors, we also had Christoph Burkhardt, CEO OneLife and Founder Burkhardt Group LLC, as a guest, who made it clear in his keynote speech that new technologies are also a driving force for a better world for him.

The reception with delicious drinks, the breaks and many interesting discussions took place on the roof terrace against a beautiful backdrop and with a breathtaking view over the city.

Reimann Investors Managing Director Jussof Breshna welcomed guests and participants from 4 pm. He led through the first part of the presentation, in which he explained the current market situation, which is challenging but certainly offers opportunities.

In the two fireside chats, Frontastic founder Thomas Gottheil spoke with Jussof Breshna about the founding of the company. And how it was still able to grow during the coronavirus crisis, as it was very well positioned as an infrastructure provider for online shops in terms of the general conditions at the time and was therefore able to benefit from the e-commerce boom.

Dirk Hoerig, CEO of commercetools, then provided insights into his pioneering position in the business sector as well as exciting insights into the current US investment market. And he explained first-hand: Who and what is my company? And why did we decide to buy Frontastic?

There were also a number of other unique highlights this time: A jazz band provided pleasant background music and a caricaturist and quick-draw artist created a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere with his drawings.

At the beginning of the year, we launched our second venture capital fund (Reimann Investors Fund II). Our portfolio companies Xempus and Scompler were therefore also present at our Portfolio Day. Firstly, Malte Dummel, COO & CFO of Xempus AG, presented his company and business model in more detail.

Mirko Lange, CEO of Scompler GmbH, then gave an overview of his vision for his company. Finally, CCO Max Berger shared the Highsnobiety story and the very successful sale to Zalando with everyone.

In his presentation, Reimann Investors Managing Director Dr Hans-Christian Perle posed the crucial question: Is today, i.e. in times of crisis, a good time to invest in technology companies? And therefore in our investment focus? Our opinion: clearly yes. Good companies can always be founded, even in times of crisis - the founding dates of many German unicorns underline this.

With our Portfolio Day this year, we once again gave our investors and interested parties the opportunity to exchange ideas in person and find out directly about news about us, our products and our portfolio companies. At the end of the presentations, we presented all speakers with a small gift. We are already looking forward to our next joint Portfolio Day in 2023.
