Michele Grossi


Raised in the countryside in Northern Italy in an entrepreneurial household, I left to complete high school in the UK aged 17. Since then, my studies and work have brought me across Europe: I first earned a BSc in Political Economy from King’s College London and then an MSc Double Degree (CEMS) in International Management (Finance concentration) from HEC Paris and Stockholm School of Economics.

As part of my Master’s program, I had the opportunity to work at funds covering different industries and strategies, developing a passion for the consumer sector, technology, and growth investing. This pushed me to join Arma Partners in London, where I covered M&A mandates across the tech and software space as well as the growth fundraises of tech-enabled businesses.

At Verlinvest, I found the platform to bridge my passion for heritage brands with that of disruptors. As part of the Consumer Technology team within our Growth strategy, I am looking to partner with innovative tech-enabled models that are driving today’s consumer revolutions.

Outside of work, I love outdoor sports such as backcountry skiing, mountaineering, golf, and running. Always keen to try new activities, I took a go at surfing a few years ago and dislocated my shoulder on the third wave (ending up with a surgery). Needless to say, the injury has not kept me away from adrenaline sports…
