Opportunities for the future

“The best part of my role is seeing the long term impact of what we build – in one of my investments, we have doubled the organic growth rate since our investment, grown our employee base and our product has changed the way professionals work. Meeting founders and CEOs of potential investment companies is a huge privilege, and I believe we can add value to what they do”
