Head of Together, EQT Ventures
Aurore Belfrage heads up EQT Ventures’ early stage matchmaking platform Together. EQT Ventures is hybrid between a VC and a startup and invests in technology-driven companies across all industries.
Aurore is experienced and slightly obsessive about building tech businesses, either as a cofounder or investor. She’s a news junkie, ex-scrap dealer, speechwriter & aubergine lover.
Aurore started her operational career as a scrap dealer in Stena Metall Group where she was managing director for the Czech and Italian scrap yards. In 2011 she co-founded the hyped global gift card startup Wrapp with Skype founder Zennström and Linkedin founder Reid Hoffman as early investors.
During 2014-2015 she hosted a successful, no-nonsense road show across the Middle East about the power of entrepreneurship - “Saluting the Crazy and Naïve”.
