Let’s Connect

Maja Markowitz joined b2venture in June 2021 as Investment Manager in the Direct Investments Team, previously working at APX in venture capital as well as stints in private equity at Partners Group and corporate M&A. 

Despite her cosmopolitan background, Maja considers herself a Rhinelander at heart and hails from Düsseldorf. “My father is from Romania and my mother from Moldavia - they met in Israel before emigrating to Germany, so I definitely have a complex identity, but the open and friendly culture of the Rhineland is definitely where I feel most at home.”   

Maja obtained a B.A in Economics and M.A. in Accounting and Finance from the University of St. Gallen. While she grew up in a family of entrepreneurs, it took a while for her to lock onto the venture capital world.

“I always had deep respect for entrepreneurs and the mentality you need to start a business, but it took me a while to realize that venture capital was where I wanted to be. I have an analytical mind and really enjoyed the challenges of private equity and corporate finance, but I am also a deeply social person and very community-driven.”

During her time at APX Maja gained valuable insights into the world of early-stage investment, helping structure follow-on investments and working with business angels across the DACH region.

“What attracted me to b2venture was the community of angel investors. It is pretty unique, and we draw on their experience and expertise to help give our portfolio companies an edge in a very competitive environment.”

Maja is an avid singer, lover of furniture design, and passionate cook as well.

“The perfect Saturday evening is cooking with friends and playing music.”
