Investments

Maria Tozzi Spadoni

Maria sits on the Investment Team at Tenzing. Her role is to evaluate and execute investment opportunities, as well as ongoing portfolio value creation work. She’s Italian but has lived across Europe, mainly in Germany, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

She moved to London at the beginning of her career, where she worked at the Gehrson Lerhman Group, helping tech growth investors get smart on the European software landscape. Here, she first developed an interest in meeting passionate management teams, learning about their business, and thinking about value creation opportunities.

She then worked for Arma Partners, a tech-focused M&A advisory firm, where she helped management teams across Europe raise the needed capital and partner with the right teams to achieve their growth plans.

In early 2022, Maria joined the Tenzing team, drawn to the entrepreneurial approach of the team and the opportunity to work with tech and tech-enabled businesses across Europe.

Passions

  • Cooking: Being one of five siblings and a passionate eater, Maria quickly realised she had to learn how to cook to satisfy her sweet tooth.
  • Musicals: She secretly would have loved to become a Broadway star, therefore loves dancing and singing to whatever musical Netflix has to offer, at the expense of her friends and family who must assist the show.
  • Secret: She’s a true meat-lover and even has a professional slicing machine and, on average, 10 types of meats and hams in her fridge.
