Alexander van Wassenaer

Alexander van Wassenaer is a seasoned private equity investor and entrepreneur.

I love working with an ambitious and truly committed team of starting entrepreneurs to help make their innovative idea and nascent business a success and lay the foundations for building a market leading company. Considering my own master’s degree from Wageningen University, I am especially keen on working with startups and scaleups in agritech in the widest sense.

Over the past 17 years, I have built my experience as an investor by putting capital and expertise to work in supporting smaller and much larger companies. It has been a privilege to work with many highly talented management teams and exciting businesses along the way. I also know first-hand how challenging and tough building, or rebuilding, a business can be.

I believe that, with the right combination of a brilliant new idea, talent, drive and sufficient resources, almost any new business can succeed and have a real, lasting and very positive impact on the world around us.
