Luigi Bajetti is a general partner and co-founder at Lombardstreet Ventures.
Luigi is a serial entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in tech and internet-based companies. He learned how a company could become global, working in his 3rd generation multinational family business, Lucchini Group, a world leader in manufacturing high-speed railway components. Everything since he was young was about entrepreneurship. Since 1998, he launched various tech companies, including a primary ISP company in Italy and a private photo-sharing service in the Bay Area.
Luigi has extensive experience building early-stage company teams, products, and go-to-market, with a deep understanding of the tech and telecommunications industry. Since 2013 he has become a full-time investor and advisor in Silicon Valley-based startups. He has invested almost always at the earliest possible stage of seed in 20+ US startups valued today at over $30 billion combined, including 8 that have since become unicorns.
Luigi specialized in Venture Capital at the Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley.
What I love about working with early-stage companies is the adrenaline and the constant evolution you have every single day of the journey. Especially working with incredible founders that strive every single moment to build something big, tackling challenging problems with a clear vision of what the future will be. And with the same passion and grit every day. Persistence is everything.
