Partner, Launchub Ventures
Rumen Iliev is a partner in Launchub Ventures – a venture fund investing in technology companies with an average investment ticket of EUR 500k and a capacity of up to EUR 1,5 million per company. The companies Rumen engages with usually have a product loved by their customers in industries that are being transformed through technology or are the pioneers in industries that are yet to penetrate our lives.
Rumen wares many hats, a mentor, a strategist, an advisor, sometimes a devil’s advocate, and sometimes “the guy who makes the slides” - when the founders are too busy closing deals. He supports, challenges and listens but the decision makers are always the founders.
Rumen traded his management consultancy practice to enter the VC world in 2012 and has been part of Launchub since the very first day. Previously, he held various positions in multinational organizations in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria. Rumen holds a Mc in Finance from the University of Economics, Prague, the Czech Republic, and a MBA from the IEDC - Bled School of Management, Slovenia.
