Managing Director EMEA at F#, Growth Hacker at Racefully, Founding Partner at Rozel Studio
I've spent 8 years as a booking agent and CEO working with both executive and creative talent, including artists, managers, PRs, record labels, promoters, festivals and more.
I've spent 3 years in leading digital agencies, and now run growth marketing for a rapidly building tech startup. I can help you implement tactics and strategies to grow quickly, plus easy to use yet powerful dashboards to measures KPIs and metrics.
I've been a startup founder, consultant to early stage firms, and builder of back-office systems for various companies. I've also been the tea-boy, the client, the agent and more - so I know what it's like to get things going.
I can help with getting off the ground; whether that's working out what to prioritise, which systems to implement first, or how to find the first customers/clients.
Angel List (www.angel.co) is a good resource - people and entities are gauged on their 'signal' rating so you can see who's most active, and that's a pretty good hint as to who is most likely to have leadership/influence in a particular area. You can search by one/many of filters such as Market, Location, Size etc. to help narrow in your search.
It's also worth looking at complementary/competitive companies and have a look at their path and investors - an example would be Pact Coffee in London, or perhaps a chain of coffee shops who have been recently funded such as Philz Coffee in San Francisco?
