"It is very rewarding to meet new founders, learn about their company, provide them with insight and guidance, and watch them scale and grow."

BACKSTORY

University sparked my interest in finance, but venture capital offered a constant inflow of different challenges, which could be solved in a team environment. I enjoyed meeting new founders, hearing their stories and learning about the companies they had built, which were solving a wide range of problems. I also identified the opportunity to have a positive impact on people and society.

After working with early-stage companies, I believe in the importance of creativity, innovation, data, relationships, and maintaining a bullish optimism.

ON THE LOOKOUT FOR

Currently focused on fintech, regtech and ESG, I am looking for exceptional founders with disruptive solutions that will have a positive impact on the world and improve our lives.  Like other investors, I am looking for strong early traction in a large addressable market, impressive unit economics and a reasonable valuation. I also pay close attention to the founder, because in early-stage companies they have a huge impact on the company’s future growth.

It has been my experience that success in sport and business comes from dedication, perseverance and backing yourself to succeed.
