BAPTISTE COTA

Founding Partner

Baptiste is one of the founding partners of LeadBlock Partners. He has a fundamental investment background with years spent on industry research, corporate strategy assessments as well as financial modelling and valuation. His work mantra is that the key to investing in B2B blockchain start-ups is not the tech itself, but how it is applied to industries’ specific inefficiencies.

Previously, Baptiste worked as an equity analyst at Goldman Sachs in London, covering the Utilities sector with a focus on Renewables, where he became the lead analyst for companies worth €100bn in total. His previous experiences include working as an equity sales at Goldman Sachs in Paris, and as a buy side financial analyst at Rothschild & Co and La Banque Postale Asset Management. He cumulates more than five years of experience in the financial sector with a focus on equity investing. Back in 2017 he started mining cryptocurrencies mainly Ethereum.

Baptiste holds a Grande Ecole degree and a MSc in Finance from Audencia Business School (France). He also spent a half-year abroad studying Finance at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He speaks English and French fluently.
