At M2P Consulting, a consultancy with around 100 consultants across its six offices, Lymbersky has been named head of its Venture & Capital Partners unit. While management consulting remains M2P’s core offering, the firm moved into the investment and private equity a while back, in a bid to tap into the opportunities in the market and deepen its service portfolio to lcints, as part of its strategy to become a ‘trusted advisor’ to its clients.

The Venture & Capital Partners business unit of M2P offers services such as Venture Acceleration, Venture Partnering, Investment & Asset Management and Capital Fund Management. The arm also can act as an intermediary for clients, helping them with target search, valuation and deal strategy, as well as supporting the negotiations between start-ups and investors.

“With his thorough experience, his professional network and his passion for the start-up and venture scene, Christoph is a big asset to M2P,” commented David Ploog, founder and managing partner of the firm.

“At M2P's Venture & Capital Partners Unit we strive to find the best investment opportunities for our clients and manage their assets with care, excellence and precision - nothing less is acceptable,” said Lymbersky.

Christoph Lymbersky studied at the University of Hamburg, completed his master's in Accounting and MBA at Bond University, Australia and subsequently obtained a PhD from Skema Business School in France.
