Lajla Aganovic

Lajla graduated from the EPFL with a MSc in cryptography and security of systems, but her passion for interacting with people worldwide diverted her from the pure scientific career to embrace the world of asset management and venture capital. She started her career in Lombard Odier (equities portfolio management), obtained the CFA certification, then moved to private investments in Freemont Management (focus on VC strategy, direct investments at growth stage and later-stage co-investments ), after which she joined Swisscom Ventures in order to fully use her technological and financial skills in a Venture Capital fund.

Lajla’s dynamic personality is also reflected in her free time activities, as she is an active tennis player, skier, and mountain hiker. She also has a passion for dancing and artistic creation, after practicing for two decades classical and modern ballet.
