Thanks to Winnileaks I have obtained an email sent by Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer’s business partner Dr Rene Eichenberger on Friday in which he reveals a falling out and slates the shamed “entrepreneur” of Ariadne Capital infamy. Rene does not hold back and his LinkedIn profile does indeed show him leaving Julie at Viva Investment Partners and now working alone at a new firm. Natch Viva’s website shows Rene still on board. The email reads:
Subject: Misinformation by Julie Meyer, VIVA Investment Partners
Date: March 12, 2021 at 9:29:07 AM EST
To: Undisclosed recipients: ;
As many of you know, I recently resigned as Chairman of VIVA Investment Partners AG (VIP). Egregious events that included gross, willful, unethical and potentially illegal behavior by Julie Meyer prompted that decision. Unfortunately, the misinformation and misleading statements have further escalated since my resignation. The events in question exposed VIP, its board, and its shareholders to unacceptable risks.
For professional and legal reasons, I do not wish any further association with VIP or Julie Meyer. I no longer have any formal or informal business relationship with either of them, any representations or misleading innuendo to the contrary are false. This formal announcement is to protect my reputation and to ensure neither liability nor responsibility for any conduct by the involved parties. Working with persons responsible for such actions is unthinkable.
Upon entering into a business relationship with Julie Meyer, I had believed her version of events that the trail of reported alleged misconduct and wrongdoing that follows her was from actions of “conspirators against women’s reputations”, as she has claimed. Sadly, I learned through direct, personal association that the risks of any business association with Julie Meyer are in fact far greater than any potential rewards. Her reputation is earned and well-deserved.
My sincere apologies to anyone whom I had previously doubted who had warned me.
If anyone wishes to contact me directly, use the email address from which this communication originated.
Dr. René Eichenberger

Perhaps instead of threatening me and this fine website, Rene should have learned that we only report the truth here. If that is a hard lesson for him he has my sympathies and my forgiveness.
