Investment Director / Prokuristin at IBB Beteiligungsgesellschaft
Startupbootcamp Digital Health Berlin Mentor
Ute Mercker is Investment Director at the Life Sciences Team of IBB Beteiligungsgesellschaft, the regional Venture Capital funds of Berlin.
Since 1997 she had been responsible for IBB´s Biotech and Medtech portfolio and managing investments into companies like Jerini or Scienion.
Spin-offs from Universities or research institutions like Humedics, Scopis and EternyGen have always been an important part of her investment activities. Successful exits like the IPO / Takeover of Jerini AG (Charité Spin-off) by Shire as well as the latest trade sale of Scopis (TU Berlin / Charité Spin- off) to Stryker support this investment approach. Ute enjoys discussing and developing strategic and financial options with the founders / management / Board of their portolio companies.
