Felix Martinez

Intern

As part of my internship at Seedcamp, I'm split across all things investments and operations. I support the investment team in sourcing and evaluating early-stage companies and across the operations team ensuring we're providing world-class support to our founders, driving initiatives such as Office Hours sessions to connect them with relevant investors, mentors or corporates in our network.

I’ve always been fascinated by the power of technology and its role in making people’s lives easier, particularly in areas where access to resources and opportunities are limited. It’s a real privilege to work every day with extraordinary people from all walks of life who are involved in the building of products which are tangibly changing the world for the better.

Prior to joining Seedcamp, I graduated with a civil engineering degree from the University of Cape Town before completing an MSc at Imperial College London. My first real taste of the tech world came during an internship at Google, after which I mainly crunched numbers in the design team of an offshore engineering company. Most recently, two friends and I co-founded a startup tackling the inefficiencies around online clothing returns processes, giving me a practical glimpse into the rollercoaster ride that is startup life - from fundraising to selling a product and managing a small team.
On a personal level, I was born in France but predominantly grew up in South Africa and Venezuela before moving to the UK. Outside of work, few things bring me more joy than playing football, travelling to new places, or surfing with friends when not stuck in London’s rain!
