Ecosystem Giants - Peter Specht

ParlayMe is proud to support #EcosystemGiants – the series, highlighting the leaders who redefine tech investment and the entrepreneurial landscape in Europe.




Tune in on Tuesday, 26 October at 5pm BST/6pm CET


#EcosystemGiants is back with one of the most exciting guests the series has seen - the investor who helped build out the DACH presence at one of the strongest early stage venture capital firms in Europe (Creandum), Peter Specht. Peter is one of the youngest partners on the continent (promoted from within) and has been scouting some of the most innovative B2B marketplaces, mobility, and product-focused ventures. He works very closely with the fund’s portfolio companies such as cargo.one, Twaice, Voi and Amie - and has experience partnering up with a couple of Europe’s most visionary founders, managing to get allocation in extremely ‘hot’, competitive deals. Prior to Creandum Peter worked at Bain & Company, Google and Rocket Internet’s ventures Lazada (South East Asia) and Paymill (Germany).


Hear from Peter Specht, one of the youngest partners at a large VC firm in Europe (Creandum). Peter will chat about getting to the partner table in his early 30s, backing some of the continent's most visionary founders and managing to get allocation in super competitive deals.



A conversation about :

  • Getting to the partner table in your early 30s

  • Building conviction (and authority) with high in demand founders of all ages

  • Being a supportive board member
