DA alumnus Konstantin Kraus on his career since graduating from the ETIA 07 in 2015
I have met great people at the DA and the experience was a valuable addition to my undergraduate studies at UCL. ETIA helped me to develop a holistic view and to connect with people from various backgrounds. I remain connected to the DA family through Club DA and I am open to connect.
I have worked and studied in 10 cities in the past 10 years so I was super happy when I had the chance to return to Vienna and help businesses with trading digital assets as Team Lead Institutionals at Bitpanda. Previously as Investment Manager at Newport Group, I had the opportunity to learn from amazing founders and serve as a Board Observer in three portfolio companies. At Foodora Austria I learned the importance of sales as Head of Business Development when we launched the Austrian market in 2015.
I also worked for the World Economic Forum and had the opportunity to attend the Annual Meetings in Davos from 2014 to 2016 before I was invited to join the Forum’s Global Shapers community in 2017. I began my career with internships at AXA Private Equity (Ardian), Deutsche Bank’s European Energy Efficiency Fund, and Societe Generale’s Investment Banking Division.
