My name is Willy Braun (@willybraun), I'm the co-founder of daphni, a new pan-European venture capital fund investing in digital startups that have a strong impact on people's lives.
Besides being a VC, I love books (check my recommandations), design, social sciences (especially psychology & economics), photography (check my photos), clothes and marketing. But most of all, I'm fascinated by storytelling and influence of all form.
Currently I’m finishing a book on Human Resources for Startups. If you’d be interested in being a early reader just drop me a mail (willy (a) daphni.com).
As soon as it is printed, I will start a book on branding and influence with my business partner Mathieu Daix. Ping me on Twitter or by email if you like the topic!
