Many successful entrepreneurs have experienced the serendipity of relevant business ideas when they were working on other ideas; Tobias Jaeger, the co-founder and managing partner at Axiom Venture Capital, can attest to this. The idea to start Axiom Ventures came up when he least expected it. Tobias has been an entrepreneur since he was college; pursuing different business ideas at a time. While he was working on Axiom Pictures—a company meant to finance films—he saw an opportunity that culminated in the founding of Axiom Venture Capital.
Axiom Venture Capital, unlike Axiom Pictures, focusses on funding all the products pursued by TV and film companies. Tobias realized that many television and film companies were willing to be financed to produce different products that would enable them to be proper entertainment sources rather than focusing on a single product. Axiom Venture is interested in startups in the entertainment industry as well as well-established companies; the company offers corporate financing instead of project financing. As at present, Tobias Jaeger is at the helm of the company that he co-founded. He is also in charge of merger & acquisitions, corporate finance, and consulting duties of the enterprise.
Tobias is an experienced entrepreneur. In 20017 when he was at Maastricht University, Netherlands, he thought of a noble business idea that led him to form “Business Associates Europe.” The company would provide strategic consulting services to corporations. But being a student, there is no way he would knock on any established company’s door and expect to be taken seriously with his calls for consultancy. However, Tobias is as innovative as they come: he linked experienced consultants with students in a move that both parties would benefit. Students were tasked with researching portfolios of well-performing companies in the region, and the consultants would use the information.
When he left college, Tobias saw an opportunity in the e-gaming industry. He teamed up with a renowned poker player to create an online platform referred to as “StrategosPoker.” The platform aimed to transform casual poker players to professional poker players.
Tobias is passionate about personality empowered. He demonstrated his passion when he became the Managing Director of Entrepreneur Academy. The Academy provides studies that enable individuals to reach peak performance in careers or entrepreneurship. The Academy is proud of its alumni who are business leaders in the Middle East and parts of Europe. Tobias has also been involved with “Thought for Food.”
