Partner & Investment Manager
Michael Ströck

We work face to face

Michael is the guy one seeks out to fix whatever bug is currently materializing. He is a serial entrepreneur, business angel, and open source software developer. Chances are that he knows what a founder is going through because he has experienced it himself or he knows someone in his network that can bridge whatever gap they face.

He co-founded Gustav (YC S17), one of only two Austrian companies ever accepted to participate in the prestigious Y Combinator acceleration program in Silicon Valley. Before co-founding Calm/Storm, he has been angel-investing on his own account for years. For the founders of his invested companies, such as Kiko,, Thryve, Probably Genetic and Flaviar, he is not only a mentor but also a friend. He has three children and is weirdly passionate about cave diving.
