Lea Bajc

Blue Horizon


Food & Agriculture


Lea brings two decades of investing, founding and operating experience. She has been on both sides of the table, both sides of the pond and has a passion for scaling tech-enabled, purpose-driven companies. Her interest in health and sustainability has been a lifelong passion: from becoming a nutritionist to launching businesses and funds with sustainability and impact angles. Lea’s career began in investment banking and private equity at Morgan Stanley, where she served as Chief of Staff to the President. Lea has been investing and building ever since, including five years with Northzone, one of the leading VC funds. While there, Lea focused on the fintech, mobile and marketplace sectors, and made investments such as iZettle (sold to Paypal for $2.2bn) and Trustpilot (IPO, "TRST"). In San Francisco, Lea served as a founder, angel investor, board member, and advisor. She was the Co-founder, President & COO of Averon, the world's strongest and easiest mobile identity platform and part of the founding team of Charge, an electric micro-mobility fuelling network. Lea is a founding partner of Ozone X, an investing platform focused on under-represented founders and was until recently a partner at Antler, a global early-stage tech accelerator. She also advises select funds. A Kauffman Fellow, Lea holds a Harvard MBA and an MSc in Business Administration from Stockholm School of Economics and HEC in Paris. She has served on a variety of corporate boards as well as on the Board of SVCA (the Swedish Venture Capital and Private Equity Association). Lea is mother to a vivacious daughter, a former fitness instructor, and a performance-hacking hobbyist. She lives by the adage that only “together, we rise.”
