What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Meeting similar folks to me. It's exciting to discover people who share the same values of hard work and vision matched with the magic of passion. I also love to invest into digital solutions and technology that helps shape industries.
I'm just attracted to people who are disrupting industries and who drive change and deliver their vision - rather than talk about it!
What is the most challenging aspect of your role?
"Failure is an event not a person - if I can succeed anyone can? Help me by backing the next generation of entrepreneurs built in the UK for the UK."
What makes your firm stand out?
What are investors saying about your firm?
What's one thing you'd like to change about the sector?
What recent investment opportunity has caught your eye and why?
The variety is amazing - initially our investments were based around retail as this was my unique area but by expanding the partners at Haatch, we have opened areas of expertise within the group towards cloud computing, e-commence tools, AR, video on demand, on-demand delivery and social.
What's the best piece of advice you have taken?
When things don't work, just pivot and change course - learn to fail quickly. It's inevitable to lose sometimes - just don't make a habit of it.
What character trait helps you succeed in your role?
I'm restless for progress but not at the expense of the customer experience. I believe in keeping it simple as "simple scales".
