Karel Obluk


Seasoned top executive and investor, working with top entrepreneurs and help them grow their businesses. My background is computer science and more specifically computer security. I am very passionate about technology in general and I love to work with great teams and smart people I can learn from.

My past experience was from AVG Technologies (NYSE:AVG, recently acquired by Avast) where I served as CTO, Chief Scientists and for more than a year also as iCEO. More recently, I am partner at Evolution Equity Partners, VC fund with offices in Zurich and New York City that invests in growth stage technology companies in North America and Europe.

I was also awarded a Kauffman Fellowship by the Palo Alto based Society of Kauffman Fellows.

Alongside Evolution Equity Partners I invested in technology companies that applied new innovative approaches to security, such as Cognitive Security - acquired by Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO), SecurityScorecard, Onapsis, DFLabs, CarbonBlack, OpenDNS, LogPoint or Scythe. Privately, as an angel investor, I invested in IT security companies like Cymmetria or StickyPassword but also further away from my "home turf" of cybersecurity, such as local startups Freedomky or AlefBet.
