Partner at EU Capital Partners
Startupbootcamp FinTech London Mentor
I originally worked at Euronext.liffe (financial futures & options exchange) in London. In 1996, while still working my day job, I began an internet startup with Jon & Unai Elosegui, hispavista.com, a top internet portal in Spain. We led several verticals, like jobs and finance. In 2000 we floated on the Paris stock exchange as part of Libertysurf ISP. I was country manager for Spain. Mid 2000, I became a partner in a small seed fund created with other entrepreneurs that had made money from selling their companies during 2000, EUCAP Partners.
I am based in the UK, I lead products for the English-speaking market, through Enclick. I spend as much time as possible with internet product teams. I mentor product managers when market traction and growth are difficult. I am useful in a hackathon, even.
I have learnt “Wealth is now created with and through the product; not promotion, not advertising, not fund-raising, not networking, not sales but product”.
I focus on product positioning – finding the most correct product for a market. Fan of the Lean Startup process and product discovery. I most like building for superb market positions; when products go viral. I have a Ph.D from Oxford, and love to keep things simple
