Julien Baumont


I started my career in finance and audit in 2007. In 2012, I joined a corporate accelerator powered by tier one consulting firm, PwC, where I advised European tech start-ups and SMEs on their international expansion. I led number of projects from commercial and financial due diligence, strategic planning and fundraising in software and industrial goods, exclusively in B-to-B.

From 2016, I spent close to 7 years with European Investment Fund doing investments in European VC funds focusing on disruptive technology and climate innovation. I led 40+ investments in tech funds across the whole VC value chain (from technology transfer to late stage) taking Advisory Board positions in 50+ funds in 14 different countries. Throughout those years I enjoyed a unique opportunity to interact with and learn from some of the best-in-class VC firms.

Following this deep dive in the European VC eco-system, I decided in 2023 to embark on the journey with Shift4Good as Partner with the intention to build the firm into Europe’s leading early-stage investor in sustainable mobility.

What I Love Doing

Former handball player I am fond of sports of all kinds and an avid reader. Although proud of my Vosgian and alpine roots, I am always thriving to broaden my horizon. I’ve a passion for investment and see tech as one of the key enablers of positive and systemic social and environmental changes. When I am not doing any of the above you can find me taking care of my young daughter… or the other way around.
