Those who know me know that I am a self proclaimed geek 🤓. I also had a very non-traditional path into VC having worked in a few different operator roles — software engineer, product manager and finance analyst across the US and APAC before starting as a tech investor here in Europe. So naturally when I first came across Project A and the concept of an “operational VC”, I was immediately blown away by the vastness of resources that Project A’s portfolio founders had supporting them. Project A has over one hundred start-up operational experts that are dedicated to their founders with real hands on support — a platform model that is more common among big Silicon Valley funds.
After getting to know the amazing people at Project A over the last few months, I am excited to announce that I have joined Project A as a Principal on the investment team! It just makes sense that a tech VC would have technical people that work with their start-ups.
Joining Project A’s growing London office
I will be supporting Project A from their London office in doubling down on early stage enterprise / deep tech and further expansion into gaming across Europe and the UK. Project A has already done multiple outstanding investments in both categories, backing founders of disruptive companies such as Spryker, Micropsi and Electric Gamebox. I look forward to turbo boosting the Project A team with my diverse operator background and my learnings from backing exceptional founders of enterprise / deep tech start-ups like CarbonChain, DreamQuark and DataForm and gaming start-ups like Streamloots, Omeda Studios and Included Games.
I am thrilled to be on board and able to cover two very different categories of tech that are both close to my heart. If you are a founder building an enterprise / deep tech 🤖 or gaming 🎮 start-up please do reach out! I am always up for meeting amazing people that are challenging the status quo.
