Thijs Emondts

Principal

Thijs Emondts is a Principal who joined Prime Ventures in 2019.

Before joining Prime, Thijs spent 5 years at Uber as the GM for the Benelux region. Having joined Uber in the early days, he brings broad operating experience to the Prime team. Not just from building a leading marketplace hands-on with on-the-ground operations, managing through explosive growth and fighting competitive battles. But also, on how to structure and adapt an organization that shifs from start-up to scale-up to being a publicly listed company.

Thijs started his career in Investment Banking and spent 6 years at Credit Suisse, where he was involved in M&A and Capital Market transactions with a focus on Tech, Capital Goods and Private Equity.

Thijs holds an MBA from INSEAD and an MSc degree in Finance from the RSM Business School (Erasmus University) in Rotterdam.

Thijs currently serves on the board of Vitesse and Orderchamp, as well as a board observer at CybelAngel.

"Building a global category leading company requires more than ambition: daily hustle, drive, energy and a strong team around you are the key ingredients. I do my best to be part of that team, supporting founders in any way I can to help build giants."
