Advisory Board

Michael Greve

Michael Greve is the CEO and Founder of Kizoo Technology Ventures and the Forever Healthy Foundation.

As Michael himself says, his lifestyle during his hacker days wasn’t among the healthiest; his interest in healthy life extension developed as a consequence of his efforts to switch to a healthier way of living. Eventually, his research into the science of staying healthy led him to the work of Dr. Aubrey de Grey and the realization that staving off age-related diseases and preserving health indefinitely was a potentially achievable goal. Following this serendipitous discovery, he founded and launched the Forever Healthy Foundation.

Forever Healthy’s mission is to enable people to vastly extend their healthy lifespan and be part of the first generation to cure aging.

They support the development of rejuvenation therapies that undo the damage of aging by funding basic research, bringing together the world’s leading scientists at their Undoing Aging conference, and helping startups that work on actual therapies for human use.

KIZOO helps young start-up teams grow by providing mentoring, seed, and early stage financing in SaaS, Internet, and mobile services, with growing focus on Rejuvenation Biotech. Apart from their financial resources, KIZOO shares its longtime experience in development, marketing, and product management.

Michael and his brother Matthias are probably two of the most successful founders in the German-speaking Internet industry. Among numerous ventures they founded and grew the site into one of Germany’s most successful flight booking destinations that was later sold to Otto Group.

They launched and turned the service into the largest German last-minute travel site in Germany, also sold to

Most notably the brothers founded and, after a successful IPO, grew the company to become one of Germany’s largest Internet portals and online media businesses, later sold to United Internet.

In 2016 it was announced by SENS research foundation that Michael would commit $10m in funding to SENS research foundation. $5M of which would go directly towards to SENS research Project|21, and another $5m that would be used to invest in growing tech start-ups in the bio rejuvenation technology field.

Project|21 is a campaign of the SENS Research Foundation which will enable the delivery of human clinical trials of rejuvenation biotechnologies by 2021.

His thoughts about his life, work, and goals:

I am grateful to have been born at this time. The flourishing of the PC, the internet, smartphones, the cloud, the post-PC era. As an entrepreneur, it’s been an incredible journey for me. Having been able to experience this development first-hand, to co-found and grow several major internet companies in Germany, to go public and today finance and mentor some of our country’s most exciting startups, is something I am thankful for every day.

Now the same dramatic evolution we saw in information technology is happening in genetics, biology, and nanotechnology. No matter how spectacular our technological development has been so far, I am even more excited about what lies ahead of us.

What started out more than ten years ago as a personal quest to shed the many extra pounds and the extremely unhealthy lifestyle I acquired while building, turned into a full-fledged project and my number one priority: Figure out the best way to use all the available and upcoming medical knowledge to be as healthy as possible and to build a personal bridge into the future.

Over time this personal quest grew into a group of people, part German, part international, genuinely interested in healthy longevity and extremely positive about the technological possibilities that tomorrow has in store for us.

For us the prospect is clear:

Our generation has been handed the most exciting opportunity in the history of humanity. We might be amongst the first to overcome aging or at least extend our healthy life span for an extremely long time.

It’s a unique opportunity that we want to use to our full advantage.

To provide a platform and the resources for the pursuit of our goals, I have created the non-profit Forever Healthy Foundation. The foundation and its resources allow us to increase our overall efforts, hire dedicated personnel, fund research and accelerate the access to healthy longevity for all of us.
