TecPier CEO Tim Reinsch joins investor Tufton

Tim Reinsch, Managing Partner of German venture capital firm TecPier, which focuses on the maritime industry, is moving to British investor Tufton to co-head a new division.

Reinsch announced the move today via social media. At Tufton, the investor is also well-known in the UK and has already invested in several shipping companies. A new venture capital arm, TuftonVC, is apparently being set up. Reinsch will also act as co-head in the future.

The finance and start-up expert, who sat on the podium at the last HANSA Forum and provided interesting insights into working for and with start-ups, will continue to be responsible for TecPier. The company was originally founded with the support of the Bremen-based Zeaborn Group, among others, and now has additional investors on board, including the Hamburg-based United Shipping Group.

However, Reinsch wants to focus on his new role in the future. “The goal is the same: to help ambitious founders solve difficult problems in the shipping industry and beyond. We will support early-stage start-ups that make the maritime industry and global supply chains smarter, greener and more resilient,” the statement reads.
