Sanjay Zimmermann


I was born in Germany, grew up in Canada, studied in the US, started my first job in the UK and hold 3 nationalities (Canadian, German and Indian).

Prior to joining White Star Capital in 2017, I spent a few years working in Investment Banking at Rothschild & Co in London working on cross-border M&A with the TMT team. Prior to banking, I produced a video series called ‘Defining Entrepreneurship’ in which I interviewed over 60 entrepreneurs across the world.

Today, I am based in Toronto and focus on Canadian and South East Asian opportunities for the fund.

Connecting with founders and innovators across continents has been part of my journey since 2012 and since joining White Star, I’ve had the pleasure of working on over 15 investments across North America, Europe and Asia.

I am an avid Tennis player, all summer you can find me running around the court, trying to win a few points against my much better younger sister. Winters I’ll be on the slopes snowboarding & listening to Tropical House.

I am a Werder Bremen football fan and my favorite Netflix show is “New Amsterdam”.
