Jan Beckers is one of the veterans of the Berlin startup scene. Today he manages the billion-dollar fund BIT Capital

He is one of the lesser-known masterminds of the Berlin startup scene. Years ago, Jan Beckers invested in the seed round of today’s DAX company Delivery Hero. A Canadian software company could yield a higher profit for him in the future. “That will be 1,000 X,” Beckers says.

Currently, Beckers focuses on BIT Capital, which already manages more than a billion euros. The two funds perform well. The firm also plans to launch a crypto fund there in the future, Beckers announced in the podcast.

The German magazine Capital spoke with Beckers about his extraordinary career.
