Founding Partner
Lucanus Polagnoli

We work face to face

Lucanus is one of Europe’s new emerging managers, founder and managing partner at Calm/Storm. Before founding Calm/Storm in 2020, he experienced both: a startup (as an operator) and a VC fund (as a General Partner) – an ideal combination for Venture Capital.

Lucanus is passionate about helping others and will assist you in every aspect of building your company. Investors and founders trust him, his hands-on approach and his knowledge around numbers. With more than 45 investments, he and the Calm/Storm team have demonstrated the ability to find and pick those rare cases where entrepreneurs are able to build both outstanding products and big businesses.

Lucanus has a passion for digital solutions that improve our health, lives and wellbeing. He has not only most likely hit the limit of the number of apps "installable" on a phone but truly believes in the democratization of access to care.

In his free time, you’ll find him spending time with his wife and three children in the most liveable city in the world: Vienna (Austria). And sometimes racing sailing boats in his home turf, Lake Attersee in beautiful Salzkammergut – or as he calls it, “The Sound Of Music Land”.
