Karim Id Boufker

Principal

Younger, I had two very different career ambition: teaching mathematics and running my own restaurant. This combination of analytical approach and entrepreneurship served me well for a career in investment and especially for what Blixt stands for.

Attending university, and accessing its infinite source of knowledge, was deeply satisfying for me. I quenched that thirst by combining degrees in mathematics and finance.

I started my career at the Boston Consulting Group where I worked for 3 years across Europe and the US. I then started my career in Private Equity where I was to give free reins to my entrepreneurial mindset while keeping a client-first mentality, in particular while working with management teams.

Having had the chance to work across various funds, I am acutely aware of the importance of culture in getting the best results. I found in Blixt the perfect mix of intellectual rigor, humility and drive. I am excited to continuously learn as well as help my team members develop.

I am the proud father of two boys and the very lucky husband of a writer and immersive theatre artist.
