About Antonis Schwarz
Antonis Schwarz has been supporting the BMW Foundation’s Munich-based team in the field of Invest since November 2018.
Raised in Munich and Athens with German-Greek roots, Antonis studied European Studies in London and management in Madrid and then decided, in 2013, to move to Athens to launch a transparency platform for Greek politics called Vouliwatch.
After the successful launch, he worked in venture capital, sustainability consultancy, and impact investing, including at the social venture capital investor BonVenture, and most recently as Community Manager of the impact investing network The ImPact. He also completed training to become a certified sustainable investment advisor.
In 2016, he founded the Guerrilla Foundation with a focus on system change and activism, which won the 2018 Nelson Mandela–Graca Machel Award for Brave Philanthropy.
Antonis’s big passion is the boards that mean the world, in other words skateboarding. He also loves traveling, which frequently takes him to far-away countries.
