An interview with Christoph Janz, VC at Point Nine Capital and first investor in Zendesk

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending #CPHFTW Townhall #6, the regular gathering of the Copenhagen startup scene. I was one of the original faces when 70 of us got together determined to improve the connectivity of the Copenhagen scene, so it was extremely rewarding and humbling for me to be invited back a couple of years later to interview Christoph Janz, VC at Point Nine Capital and one of the first investors in Zendesk.

Over the course of the 25 minute fireside chat, we discussed Zendesk, how to to achieve $100 million in revenue with a SaaS company, Europe’s ecosystems and everyone’s favourite topic, ‘unicorns’. Christoph has some incredible insights, particularly in the SaaS space, so I can highly recommend watching/listening to our chat. For more of Christoph’s insights, then check out his blog The Angel VC.

In fact, it’s through Neil Murray’s newsletter that I first heard about Mapillary. Several months later, I was fortunate to lead our firm’s investment in the Company to help drive the creation of a crowdsourced visual representation of our world”
