Francisco Lino Marques

Partner

Francisco’s professional life starts early, still during his degree, due to family requirements, where he had to assume leadership roles in a retail family group unexpectedly.

The professional path was marked by rewarding experiences in large companies such as SONAE (Worten) and Würth and enriching adventures in entrepreneurship such as the creation of a tasting space or BigNew, a boutique consulting firm dedicated to the areas of strategic, operational, and management in startups, small and medium entities.

In 2020, Francisco developed, as a Partner and member of the Board of Directors, the areas of Investment Analysis, Monitoring of Portfolio, and Institutional Marketing & Corporate Relationships in a Venture Capital firm.

Pursuing sustainability purposes applied to a vision of strategic growth for companies, in 2021, he embraces the challenge of the GED group to develop Venture Capital as Partner and member of the Board of Directors of GED Ventures Portugal.
