Paul Jozefak, an investment director at software group SAP, is joining Dr Neuhaus, a Hamburg-based venture capital firm, as a partner later this year.

Dr Neuhaus Techno Nord, a German early-stage venture capital firm, has hired Paul Jozefak as a partner.
 
Jozefak, 31, joins in September as the fourth partner in the Hamburg-headquartered firm, alongside Pablo Fetter, Matthias Grychta and founder Gottfried Neuhaus.
 
For the past six years, Jozefak has been an investment director at global business software group SAP, where he has been responsible for European venture capital investments. During that period he has worked on 15 technology investments and several exits.
