Tobias Jaeger: Keeping a Fresh, Open Face to the World
As an avid traveler of the world, Tobias Jaeger has met so many people of different cultures; he really can’t fit into one himself. But what he can do is run companies, and do it successfully. As the Managing Partner of AXIOM Venture Capital, Jaeger is responsible for finding entertainment companies looking for investments for the long run.
Before AXIOM Venture Capital, and really before much else, Tobias Jaeger knew what he wanted to do and knew he could do it well. In school at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, he founded his first company, Business Associates Europe in 2007. The company’s goal was to deliver consulting services to companies by integrating consulting experts with university students to research companies in and outside of the Netherlands. After Business Associates Europe came Entrepreneur Academy, which provided personality empowerment courses to entrepreneurs across Europe and the Middle East.
Feeling a need for change, Tobias Jaeger then sought out the entertainment industry, somewhere he had wanted to be for a long time. His initial time in the entertainment industry brought him to Switzerland where he worked with ‘Thought for Food’ and created a documentary and conference about how the next generation of leaders is shaping the food industry. The leaders would be using new technologies to develop new business models to help feed the world.
After ‘Thought for Food’ came his most recent adventure with AXIOM Venture Capital, where he found that a great number of entertainment companies were leaning more towards becoming entertainment firms rather than producing one or two projects or products. Thus, the investment group AXIOM was formed to help those companies looking to maintain their footing in the entertainment world by investing in the companies for the long-term.
Tobias Jaeger loves to talk to people; inside the entertainment industry or just in a new country, he loves to find out new information. It is how he has become such a natural investor; he knows what the people want and why. Expanding his circle of followers has often paid off for Jaeger as well, with new ventures popping up seemingly every day, it’s tough to be on top of it all. He says that keeping an open mind to others and their ideas can lead any entrepreneur in the right direction. And it sure has paid off well for Tobias.
