Valentin Schütt has partnered with Tom Schröder to found the Seven Miles Group. The first companies in the group are the holding company Seven Miles GmbH and the wholly-owned subsidiary Seven Miles Ventures GmbH as the operational unit involved in company development. Shares in the holding company are split 50/50 between Valentin Schütt’s investment company and the investment company S Quadrat Beteiligungen GmbH, held indirectly by Tom Schröder at 80% and Harald Schafeld at 20%.
Valentin Schütt is the former CEO of the company ViA-Online GmbH. After selling his company to eBay International AG / eBay Inc., Schütt continued to serve as CEO for another five years. On 31 January, he left the company in order to see his ideas brought to fruition within the Seven Miles Group.
