Lina Wenner

Lina is a Partner at firstminute and joined the firm in London the week we made our first investment in 2017.

Since 2020, Lina runs our Berlin satellite office and from there - as a German and Swedish national - covers the DACH and the Nordic regions. Her portfolio spans health tech, gaming, B2B SaaS, and verticalised AI/ML. Since joining, Lina has sourced and led investments into Clockwork Labs, Engflow, Taktile, Xata, Infraspeak, Lindus Health, Elephant Healthcare, amongst others. Her favourite part of the job: diving deep into new domains, and in the process becoming smitten by an entrepreneur’s dedication to solve a big problem.

Prior to firstminute, Lina worked as a strategy consultant with the Boston Consulting Group in Germany. She studied Economics, Psychology and Statistics, and holds degrees from University College Utrecht, and the University of Cambridge.

Outside of work, you might find her at a yoga class, playing the piano or bringing people together by hosting big dinner parties (usually with average food but excellent company).
