**Full Video Transcript (Translated)**:

*Note: The original video transcript has been refined and translated for clarity.*

_”I found myself traveling to Berlin, wondering how I could learn about the tech industry. So, I went to Seychelles and spent ten days there. I was bored to death. I have always been interested in business issues related to technology.”_ (1)

_”I believe that one way to bring about change, both industrial and environmental, is through technology. Being an investor in a fund like mine allows me to address these challenges with an outsider’s perspective while having hands-on experience working with startups.”_ (2)

_”When I joined Point Nine Capital, it was exciting for me because I found it interesting to have the opportunity, right from the beginning, to take charge of processes and work directly with startups. With Christoph, it was clear that the way we operate is that each team member can search for and propose a deal based on their conviction. Then, we try to convince the entire team by sharing our points of view. If we have valid arguments, we take the lead in the investment process.”_ (3)

_”Welcome to Runway Series, the podcast by UPCOMINGVC®, the education platform for entrepreneurs and aspiring founders.”_ (4)
