Rok Habinc manages STH Management’s venture investments. Targeted companies domicile in Slovenia or elsewhere in the region and are developing a product/service with global reach. The developed product/service adds to environmental sustainability or reduces environmental impact – globally or just locally. Ideally, the development of the product/service is finalized, the team is ready to bring it to the market and needs a financial push to start the wider sales effort.

His prior engagements include heading an industrial production company, executive positions in fund management companies and various production industries, and M&A projects in the financial services, packaging, telecommunications, and IT sectors. Rok is a board member or a non-executive management member in several companies in the STH Management portfolio.
