Stephen Weich supports eCAPITAL as new Venture Partner

eCAPITAL AG welcomes a new venture partner. flaschenpost co-founder Dr. Stephen Weich has strengthened the team with his diverse experience since January.

Dr. Stephen Weich studied business administration at the Westphalian Wilhelms University in Münster and earned his doctorate at the Institute for Accounting and Auditing there. After holding positions at Roland Berger and Ernst & Young, he became CFO and later CEO at flaschenpost SE in 2016. Stephen Weich played a key role in building up the Münster-based company and, as CEO, successfully led the takeover by the Oetker Group and the subsequent post-merger integration with Durstexpress. At the end of 2021, Stephen Weich has left flaschenpost to take on new professional challenges. Among other things, he has also been active as a business angel for some time.

I decided to take on this new role as a venture partner at eCAPITAL because I want to focus on impact investments after the exciting time at flaschenpost. The successful portfolio of the eCAPITAL team, with whom I have been exchanging ideas for a long time, offers numerous starting points here.
