An experienced technologist, my early corporate successes led me to form my own enterprise software company, producing and selling to Universities and institutions. A hands-on role, I executed this idea from concept to maturity, while also leading the international development for an advanced engineering company before its M&A.
I’m a former Senior Adviser at UK trade & investment, where I used my time to build contacts in technology, IoT and Smart cities sectors, as well as the investment and accelerator environment. Managing a team of seven, my role facilitated a good understanding of the London technology environment. I then continued my passion for supporting Start-up and Scale-up organisations by joining London & Partners as Head of Financial Services & Business Technology. I also led the Mayor’s international business programme for the technology & urban sector.
Having stepped back into the private sector, I’ve continued supporting ideas, Start-ups and Scale-ups with several of my own investments and ventures, including working with an amazing co-founder on an exclusive Fintech accelerator programme, The Fintech Power50, and running the Operations & Editorial functions at The Fintech Times, a global multimedia news outlet centred around the world’s first leading Fintech newspaper.
