I have significant scale-up expertise, running a leading venture-backed startup and taking the team from 2 to 40 while more than 10X'ing revenue in my 3 years as CEO.
Along the way, I built up a deep knowledge of fundraising: both traditional venture capital and equity crowdfunding. I led JustPark through a fundraising with Index Ventures, arguable the leading European VC. I also led the company through the largest ever equity crowdfunding for a tech startup of £3.7M.
I currently work as an Entrepreneur in Residence at a leading London startup studio where I'm retained by global brands and corporates to build startups for them.
Finally, I'm a highly analytical problem solver. I hold a Double First from Oxford University and have a particular knowledge of sharing economy and marketplace businesses, having authored a leading book on the sharing economy, The Business of Sharing (Macmillan, 2015).
