Srecko Dzeko is a General Partner with Flash Ventures in Berlin, focusing on Europe and Latin America. Prior to joining Flash, he was a Senior Consultant at McKinsey.
During his career, Srecko worked in banking with ANZ and Morgan Stanley, private equity with 3i, and founded his own startup: Simplo, a venture-backed B2B marketplace. Srecko holds degrees in philosophy from the London School of Economics, and business from the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management.
In this episode, Srecko talks to us about investing in early-stage companies as a day-zero investor. His investment decision-making criteria, what he looks out for in a startup, and most importantly in a founders team.
We learn how Flash Ventures thinks about deal sourcing by creating a network of exceptional people, even before they even think about founding a company. That is how committed Srecko and Flash ventures are to finding the right founders.
Srecko also gives advice to founders, and people that want to start a career in VC.
