Delivering operational expertise for investors

I work with individual, venture capital and private equity investors to give them an expert operational perspective on potential or current investments.

As an investor it can be hard to get under the hood of a business from the outside. Knowing what’s really going on and why is important to be able to value a business or provide board leadership for a current investment.

As a senior executive specialising in working with investors, I combine extensive operational experience of tech-centric growth businesses with an understanding of investment models and the needs of different investor types. I give you honest, frank and informed opinions on the things you need to know about in the businesses you work with.
