5. Word from a founder.

Uros Lekic - TenNine vc

Hello, I am Uros

I founded TenNine VC after being a cofounder, advisor to startups and investor. Much before, I worked for corporations like Capgemini and Bosch.


I learned venture in Silicon Valley with VU Venture Partners. In parallel I collaborated with Seedrs and Blockchain Founders Fund as a venture partner. TenNine VC concept matured during my 18 months’ executive studies at Stanford University. Together with a Stanford colleague, we defined our dual fund model, as an opportunity to offer planet positive co-investments to the members of one of the world’s most impactful networks, the Stanford University alumni.


Ever since I entered the startup world in 2017, I am fascinated with the passion, skill and perseverance of the founders I meet. Courageous and smart, the best ones are working relentlessly to invent future technologies, create jobs in world bettering companies and take the lead as innovators. They dream and create, hustle and grind, persevere to resolve the countless obstacles in forwarding the missions they feel as their own. I made it my professional mission to help and promote these pioneers, and leave a legacy of good while doing it.

In 2023 I went on to start TenNine Pro, advisory as a service. We are engaging our same power network as with TenNine VC, this time expanding our impact to helping the operations of companies which we want to see thrive.

I want to meet planet positive movers and shakers. Be you a founder, investor, limited partner, industry expert or a community leader, please get in contact with me and my colleagues at TenNine VC. We are curious to talk about the investment opportunities, insights, trends and ideas.
