Felix Winckler

Venture Partner

I'm a French native who has lived across Brussels, New York and London. I'm currently based in London, but you'll find me climbing mountains in the Alps most weekends.

It is from these mountains that the impact of climate change is most visible. Today, I’m putting all my energy to support business who can accelerate our green transition.

Although I started my career as a New York State lawyer, I’ve been a startup operator for the last 15 years. After a short career in commercial litigation, I was lucky to cofound my first tech business in 2012. Our user generated opinion poll service (VoicePolls) gained significant traction in the early days of the App Store. Following this successful experience, I co founded an election software called Votebox which aimed to allow voters to participate in elections directly from their smartphones. Votebox early clients included the French Républicain party (LR).

Most recently, I co founded Reflaunt which is the leader in white label fashion resale solutions. The business offers retailers the technology and operational support to accelerate their circular transition. Our clients include amongst others Net a Porte, Balenciaga, Harvey Nichols or Saks. It is through this journey that I met many inspiring entrepreneurs looking to make the world more circular and sustainable.

Today I’m really excited to be part of the Early Growth team and have the opportunity to share my operator experience with other founders. The coming decades will need to see major changes across all industries. The green transition is the next industrial revolution and I want to be part of it.

I always felt frustrated when speaking to investors, feeling they didn’t understand what it meant to build a company from scratch. I hope that I can share more common grounds now that I’m on the other side of the table.

My great passion in life is ski touring. Through winters months, I’m keeping an eye on weather forecasts to find the best locations to climb peaks and ski down snowy slops across the alps and North America. I’m also a keen tennis player if you’re looking for someone to hit the ball with.
