NICOLE JUNKERMANN is a London-based entrepreneur and investor focused on the crossover between the media and technology sectors.

She is among a new group of well-connected, successful, technology-orientated entrepreneurs, who believe that digital innovation and experimental technology – especially robotics, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and genomics – will create breakthroughs in areas from medicine to education, and from retailing to premium content consumption.

Nicole’s investments are guided by the belief that people’s desire for quality content endures, even while technology revolutionizes the way we discover, consume and share it. As artificial intelligence and augmented and virtual reality change our relationship with the digital world once again, she is now working with the entrepreneurs that will define these emerging industries.

She began her entrepreneurial career in 1998 as a co-founder of football gaming portal Winamax. Following its sale in 2001, she invested in newly-founded Infront Sports and Media, a sports media rights agency. Along with one other leading shareholder, Nicole helped develop Infront into one of the world’s leading sports media rights businesses, eventually selling it to private equity group Bridgepoint for €650m in 2011.

Since 2011, Nicole has returned to her roots in digital innovation, focusing on opportunities in areas like robotics, genomics, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and premium content. Three of her early investments, Songza, Dollar Shave Club and RelatelQ, were acquired by Google, Unilever and Salesforce, respectively. Through NJF Capital, Nicole has stakes in 26 companies, including Spoon Guru, and also Emoticast, Jobbio, Grabyo and Sentient.
