Spintop has a team of 6 investment professionals, supported by a group of Senior Advisors with complementary profiles and a network of 50+ successful entrepreneurs and executives from the technology sector that have invested in the Spintop funds.
– Since Spintop invested in Practio in 2020 I’ve worked closely with Spintop partner Erik Wenngren and the Spintop team in building our company, and I’ve gotten to know first-hand the incredibly contributions that the right venture investor can have – both to the company and to me as founder and CEO. From day one our working relationship was based on trust, transparency and a constant focus on building our company together, and this is the approach I’ve since taken with my own investments as well. I’m very excited to join Spintop as Senior Advisor, says Mads Mikkelsen.
