Christoph Janz, co-founder and Managing Partner at Point Nine Capital, said: “In the last year, we’ve had the pleasure to work together with Michael on two of our portfolio companies; Contentful and Typeform. He deeply impressed us with the breadth and depth of his knowledge and his ability to help young internet entrepreneurs.”
