bmp Beteiligungsmanagement AG appoints Dr Jan Alberti as partner

Berlin/Magdeburg/Potsdam , 14 January 2016 – bmp Beteiligungsmanagement AG has appointed Dr Jan Alberti as a new partner from within the company. The appointment of Jan Alberti reflects his performance to date as an investment manager and the continuing business success of the Berlin-based venture capital company, which more than doubled both its fund volume under management and the number of investees in 2015.

We can look back at a successful financial year in 2015, the high point of which was securing the management mandate for the IBG fund in Saxony-Anhalt. This not only enabled us to increase our fund volume to over € 200 million,” explains Oliver Borrmann, CEO of bmp Beteiligungsmanagement AG. “We also increased the number of investments that we manage to a total of 80 companies and took on 10 new employees at the Magdeburg location. The new employees have been successfully integrated and the deal flow for potential investees has been developed. This is thanks in part to the outstanding achievements of Dr Alberti. As such, we are delighted to gain Dr Alberti as a partner and thus to assign additional management tasks to him.

Dr Jan Alberti has been working for bmp as an investment manager since April 2013 and in this role he currently manages nine investments from the portfolios of bmp Holding, BFB Frühphasenfonds Brandenburg and the Saxony-Anhalt IBG fund. His focus here is on companies from the field of the internet and the digital sector (SaaS, big data, mobile, e-health). In addition, he has proven expertise in financing, business development and corporate governance.

Before joining bmp, he spent six years working as a senior manager at GO:INcubator, where he was responsible for advising and financing around 60 technology-oriented start-ups. After completing a degree in Business Administration at the University of Potsdam, he then earned a doctorate on the topic of “business models for incubators” with research and work stays in Cambridge, Helsinki and Xi'an. He has also worked in controlling at Siemens in the USA and in investment banking at HSBC Trinkhaus & Burkhardt.
