Andris BerzinsVC seed stage investor in Baltic startups, former startup founder, startup activist, father of four.
After spending two years at Stanford Business School during the run-up to the dot-com bubble, my appetite was whetted in the intersection of technology and business. Aside from two years at a strategy consulting firm Bain & Company, I have spent the past 18 years at technology startups in the US and Europe. Highlights include two executive roles, including 2 startups, that each exited for over $100M. Today I am Managing Partner of Change Ventures, the first and largest pan-Baltic seed fund, backing ambitious Baltic founders building global success stories.
Outside work, I am a father of four kids, husband to a wonderfully smart and capable lawyer. I co-founded and am on the boards of the TechHub Riga and TechChill foundations and work to support the startup community in Latvia and the other Baltic States. Last but not least - I’m a part time (aka weekend) warrior in the National Guard of Latvia, serving as an infantryman in the 1st Riga Brigade.
A Middle East business expert. I can help to design strategies, develop business, design an effective entry strategy, navigate registration processes and implement corporate training initiatives in B2B environments.
When I was 16 years old, I've sued Lithuania to get full legal rights of an adult. Won the case.
I work in a retail hight tech space: AI & ML solutions, store automation, customer analytics. Constantly traveling between Vilnius and London. Attending most of the biggest retail tech conferences in the western hemisphere.
Before pivoting to the retail industry I worked with military drones, AI for drones and as a hobby I've founded Drone Racing Lietuva community. Together with the team we've organized quite a few international drone racing events in Baltics.
When I'm not working I'm swimming, biking, running or I play tennis. I played tennis professionally as a kid from 4 to 14 y.o. Afterwards kept playing tennis on an amateur level. I love to compete in an amateur tennis competitions around LT and whenever possible in UK, but for the time being I'm dedicated to start my triathlete career.
My family has raised me as an entrepreneur, so my involvement in investment, tech, and business industries was inventible. I have over 20 years of professional experience working with multinational corporations such as Yahoo! and Virgin, where I connected with wonderful people, gained priceless knowledge, and mastered my skills. After a while, I felt confident enough to co-establish a Silicon Valley-style venture capital firm, Mosaic Ventures with Simon Levene, my lifetime business partner, and friend.
