Filip Dames 2
Filip Dames
Founding Partner Cherry Ventures

Having a wealth of experience in the world of startups, Filip Dames is a force to be reckoned with. He founded a proto-NFT marketplace in 2008 and the following year went on to be part of the founding team of the popular online retailer where he was the Chief Business Development Officer.

These experiences have undoubtedly informed his strategy with Cherry Ventures, a Berlin-based seed fund that has seen a string of successes under his leadership.

It’s no surprise that he was recently named German Start-up Investor of the Year by the German Start-up Association, and in 2022, he made his debut on Forbes’ Midas List Europe, solidifying his reputation as one of the most influential figures in the tech industry.
