Ivan Farneti

Partner at Five Seasons Ventures

Startupbootcamp FoodTech Rome Mentor

I was a VC investor at Doughty Hanson where I made early stage investments in software and internet companies and learnt to be patient and that working with great founders makes life easier and ultimately makes money for everybody.

I was an entrepreneur with Glory Kickboxing where I turned my personal passion into my work to find out that running a start up, no matter how well financed, is a lot harder than investors think.

I have been and still am a passionate mentor and EIR at Seedcamp because that’s where the cutting edge people hang out with the best entrepreneurs and with true risk taking investors

I am a husband and a father, a martial artist and a keen fisherman because life needs balance.
