Meet AfricaBerlin Network’s New Ambassador

Story Highlights
  • Konstantin has been active in the African VC and startup space for the last four years. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Management & Technology from the TU of Munich. Following university, he worked and travelled across the continent and joined the African-focused venture builder GreenTec Capital in Frankfurt.

After GreenTec, Konstantin Behr became a founding member of Satgana, an early-stage Climate Tech VC fund on a mission to invest in the next generation of founders building technology solutions to solve climate change in Europe and Africa. 

For the last year, Konstantin studied Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship at the London School of Economics and worked as a summer analyst at a Nairobi-based VC. During his time at LSE, he was active in the entrepreneurship society and tried to set up a student-led impact fund to empower more young people to gain access to the VC space.

Recently, Konstantin joined Founders Factory Africa as Chief of Staff. FFA is a corporate-backed investor, venture builder, and accelerator on the mission to build and scale 100+ tech businesses across Africa. 

As an AfricaBerlin Network ambassador, Konstantin joins our network of representatives, bridge-builders, and policymakers across Africa and Europe to push forward the network’s mission to create cross-continental connections and partnerships to strengthen the global entrepreneurship ecosystem. 

The AfricaBerlin Network is a project funded by the European Fund for Regional Development as part of the Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is supported by the Berlin Senate Department for Economy, Energy and Public Enterprises, and it is implemented by enpact in close cooperation with Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie GmbH and the ever-growing support of other stakeholders.
