Investment Manager at MMC Ventures

Startupbootcamp FinTech London Mentor

I’m a member of the investment team at MMC Ventures, a London-based venture capital firm. We invest in early stage businesses in sectors where the UK is a world leader, including e-commerce, digital media, fintech and software/SaaS. And it’s keeping us busy: I did >24 deals in <24 months in 2012-13. I’m interested in exciting and disruptive business models, particularly around media, mobile and data. Always keen to meet entrepreneurs who are building the future and thinking big. Still waiting for someone to do something interesting with NFC, though… Previously I was a Senior Consultant in the Strategy team at Deloitte in London, focusing on the TMT sector. I spent three years working with media, telecoms, cable and tech clients across Europe, including the BBC, BT, Virgin Media, PPL and Thomson Reuters.

I’ve dabbled in a number of small ventures at university and afterwards, and pretended to be a rocket scientist for a while.
