Felix Petersen

Managing Director at Samsung Next Europe

Scratch the surface of Berlin’s tech scene and you’ll find traces of Felix’s influence everywhere, and vice versa. His connection to the European tech and startup scene is deep, his knowledge is broad — and he has a knack for being in the right place at the right time like being in Lisbonjust as that city’s startup scene blossomed.

Felix is also an archetypical TOA (Tech Open Air) person: an inter-disciplinarian who wants to bring people and technology together in a powerful, meaningful way. And now, appointed managing director of Samsung NEXT in Europe, a new adventure starts for him — and it may have a profound effect on the European tech world.
