Sandra Schiessl – MiddleGround Capital

Sandra Schiessl

Associate, Business Development

Sandra is an Associate on our Business Development team based in Amsterdam. She has a Franco-German double degree with a specialization in economics, and furthered her education with double master’s degree in Franco-German management. Throughout her studies she completed internships in Finance and Business Development in Luxembourg and Berlin, but her most recent position was as an Investor Success Associate with Moonfare, a European Retail Private Equity platform.   

You couldn’t tell from her international studies, but Sandra grew up in a small village in the south of Germany; she quickly realized that country life didn’t suit her and would ultimately move through 7 cities across 3 countries during her University years! Her favorite city thus far has been Berlin, she loves a place with an artistic and alternative edge, further proven by her love of metal music (she and Karyn are already fast friends as fellow crowd surfers!) and she’s excited to add Amsterdam to the list. When she isn’t working or headbanging at a show, Sandra loves to learn new languages. She’s even taken intro Mandarin classes, but since her teacher often giggled at her German-Chinese accent she’s decided to pursue Dutch next instead.
