On this week’s show, we spoke with Sanjay Zimmermann, Principal @ WhiteStar Capital

Since joining White Star Capital at the start of 2017, Sanjay worked on over 10 investments made by the fund across Canada, New York, Germany and South East Asia. While at the firm, Sanjay spent a year pursuing an MBA at Insead in Singapore and returned in September 2020 to launch White Star capital’s Toronto office. Sanjay focuses on identifying talented teams and founders for White Star Capital across Canada and south east Asia.

Before joining White Star Capital as an Associate, Sanjay started his career in investment banking at Rothschild & Co in London. During this time, he worked within the technology, media and telecommunications team, where he focused on corporate finance and M&A advisory for a full range of European companies. Prior to this, he helped manage part of Babson College’s endowment, overseeing the college’s technology fund investments.

Sanjay attended Babson College as a Weissman Scholar and used the program’s stipend to produce a video series called ‘Defining Entrepreneurship’ in which he interviewed over 60 entrepreneurs across the world. He earned a BSc in Business Administration before going on to complete the General Course at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Born in Germany and raised in Canada, Sanjay is a dual Canadian-German citizen.

 

On the show, we spoke about:

  • How tennis helped him in his career
  • Getting into VC
  • The three key roles in his role
  • Having a global perspective
  • Deal flow in Toronto versus Montreal
  • Why he’s excited about the future of work

Sanjay is a brilliant young VC that keeps laddering up. It was a joy to talk and learn from him. I hope that you enjoy the conversation!
