I'm a seasoned venture capitalist with a talent for spotting new markets early, distinguishing hype from reality and knowing which trends have legs and which will flame out. I love working with talented entrepreneurs to build products that people love and sustainable, high value, businesses.
Since the summer of 2013 I have been Managing Partner of Forward Partners (FP), a high value add early stage investment business which is part of Forward Internet Group. For the thirteen years prior to that I worked in a number of venture capital roles, mostly in London, but with spells in Silicon Valley. My main areas of focus have been ecommerce, software and media and I have been personally responsible for over 25 investments including Buy.At (acquired by AOL for $125m), Zeus Technology (acquired by Riverbed for $140m), Unbound, Conversocial, StrikeAd and Lyst.
I am also the author of Europe's most popular venture capital blog - www.theequitykicker.com (recent posts below).
