Isabella Hermann-Schön

 

Isabella is a Managing Partner at Round2. She joined Christian and Jan in 2016 to work on the set-up of the fund and the implementation of the revenue-based finance strategy. Having been socialized with high-yield fixed income investing and having worked with technology companies on their go-to-market strategies, for Isabella, revenue-based finance was just the perfect instrument to align the interests of entrepreneurs and investors alike. 

Prior to Round2, Isabella worked as a consultant with a boutique consultancy specialized on market research and go-to-market strategies for technology companie. She worked with European companies ranging from startups to listed multinationals. 

She started her career at ZZ Vermögensverwaltung GmbH in Vienna and shaped the scale-up of the asset management firm by introducing risk management and controlling processes for the group’s investment vehicles which ranged from UCITS funds open to the public to proprietary structures. On the investment management side, she was responsible for the selection and management of the private equity fund and direct investments. During her time with ZZ she also spent some years in Switzerland to set up the group’s licensed Swiss asset management business from scratch. 

Isabella enjoys building new things and keeps her calm in challenging situations. She has a focus on the customer and likes to “combine the dots” when it comes to how markets function and how people interact. An Austrian national, Isabella lives close to Vienna with her husband and son. She holds a MSc in Business Administration from the University of Vienna and a postgraduate degree in quantitative finance from the CCEFM Program, the predecessor to the Vienna Graduate School of Finance. She spent some of her studies in Italy. Isabella is a CFA charter holder.
