“We’re honored to have Camille join us at byFounders! She’s not only intelligent and hard-working but also incredibly empathetic and curious. Already after a couple of weeks with the team, it’s clear that she goes above and beyond to engage with visionary founders and add value from the first interaction. Her deep knowledge and understanding of the Web3 and DeFi space are additionally already proving to make us even more competitive in the space,” bolsters core team member, Sara Rywe.

As a firm believer that entrepreneurship is one of the most powerful ways to make an impact and bring innovative solutions for the best use of society, Camille is always looking for founders who have the grit to build something life-changing. She is particularly interested in Web3, DeFi, DevTools, payments, and sustainability.

“I look for teams that are fundamentally challenging the status quo, be it thanks to a truly transformative technology, a strong purpose, a new business model hack, or a phenomenal drive to operate, even in highly regulated markets.”

Camille started her career in VC at Korelya, a pan-European late-stage fund with strong connections to Asia, before moving to the Nordics at Inventure, where she covered seed and Series A investments from Stockholm. 

“I’m excited to move into earlier stage investing. That’s where the exploration happens: I’m forced to think beyond what will be grand in 2-3 years, but most likely in 5-10. Then we’re talking about ground-breaking technology and societal paradigm shifts. It’s thrilling!” 

Raised in the suburbs of Paris, Camille is a curious soul and avid explorer. She started learning Mandarin and playing the piano at a young age and explored both the finance and startup world before delving into VC. 

Camille graduated from HEC Paris with a CEMS double degree. She lived, studied, and worked in Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, the United States, Norway, Sweden, Finland, before now joining us at our headquarters in Denmark. 

“These last couple of moves probably make me the most Scandinavian person on the team.” 🤪

When she is not deeply involved in a deal, she loves going to the theater, visiting art exhibitions, and attending magic shows. You can also meet her bouldering or climbing aerial silk if you dare. 😉

“A life goal of mine is to open a huge campus where artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs can explore together the unexplored and co-create wonders, not for the sake of utility, but simply for beauty.”

Camille is always excited to meet founders. You can reach her at camille@byfounders.vc.

Caroline Frantl Larsson
Head of Communications & Community

By leveraging her background in coaching and community-building, Caroline ensures our founders are exposed to our catalog of value-add offerings by acting as a catalyst within our community. In addition, Caroline oversees the external communication of the fund and sees to it that the stories from our community are elevated and carried across the wider startup ecosystem.

Her passion for storytelling and community-building probably stems from a multicultural background (Denmark is her seventh home). Prior to joining byFounders, Caroline supported companies in scaling to the UK and US. She worked with world-renowned FMCG companies before pivoting into the Nordic startup ecosystem.

Outside of work, Caroline is usually trying her hand at one of her latest (sometimes quiet absurd) projects, like performing in an 80’s pop choir. She graduated from University of Chicago with a degree in sociology, applied communications, and philosophy, and holds a Diploma in Transformational Coaching from Animas Coaching Centre.
