Sebastian Pünzeler is the scientific specialist for life science companies at coparion, the expert in molecular biology and in state-of-the-art lab technologies. Already during his diploma thesis, he got infected with the startup-virus when he worked for a LMU BioCenter spin-off. As the „exotic guy“ in venture capital, Sebastian loves the combination of scientific expertise and business know-how. In his spare time Sebastian rocks the drumset. As with young companies, he looks for „the certain something“ with music and progressively sets the tempo in different bands with various musical styles.
