Ash Linsbichler is Chief Executive of tech startup Veva, which brings together venues,offers and friends into a single app with the aim of making going out easier. She is also Director of Austrian confectionary brand Metzger & Söhne and was formerly Board Director of beverage brand Nixe. She has 10 years of experience in insurance technology where she managed Lloyd’s and London market clients with annual revenues of around £2 million.
She met her husband and Veva co-founder Lukas Linsbichler at Cass. “The MBA gave us all the tools we needed to start a business and a great network through which we found our Chief Technology Officer and numerous interns,” says Ash.
“The incubation facilities at The Hangout (City’s incubation space for student and graduate entrepreneurs) have been invaluable in the support they give for early operations, marketing and pitching events.”
“I am very excited about pushing Veva outside of London to disrupt the way we go out and I’m also closing a Series A investment round to scale the brand,” she says. And she’ll also be getting the Metzger & Söhne brand into international markets. Long term, Ash and Lukas also plan to open a hotel in Austria.
