Otto van Wassenaer

Investment Analyst

Otto gets excited by people creating, building and investing in early-stage businesses. He loves working with diverse and complementary teams, together making their dreams a reality.

Where it all started

Born and raised in Amsterdam, Otto spent most of his early days playing competitive football and tennis. He finished his secondary school at a United World College in America, then studied law at Utrecht Law College and University of Cambridge for his bachelor’s (honours) and business at University of Amsterdam for his master’s (cum laude).

Excited by creators & builders

Following internships in corporate law (De Brauw), private equity (Novidam) and at a tech startup (Dealroom), he chaired his student association (Utrechtsch Studenten Corps) and set up a student interview platform (Utrecht Union). Following this, Otto interned at Slingshot!

Strongly believes that the biggest risk one can take is not taking any risk.
