I am the Co-Founder of Collider, an accelerator funding and helping marketing and advertising tech startups successfully collaborate with big brands. www.collider.io
We launched the accelerator in 2012 to fund, super charge and connect early stage businesses to help them grow faster and increase in value. We have attracted individual investors and collaborative brands such as Unilever, Diageo, BBC Worldwide and Bauer to help startups create the most commercially powerful businesses.
I have over 15 years experience in early stage fund raising from founding Pembridge Partners, working at 3i and Creative Capital Fund. During this time I have invested in ad tech and media including: Optimad Media Systems, The Ministry of Sound and Cycling.tv.
Previously I was Head of Sales at Ziff Davis, Part of the Softbank Corporation - an early investor in Yahoo. This is where I became fascinated by digital and its potential for transformation.
I enjoy being an active member of the startup scene in London getting involved in a variety of events and initiatives. I have mentored early stage companies through Seedcamp, IBM Smartcamp, Growth Accelerator and Oxygen.
I also mentor for the Cherie Blair Foundation - www.cherieblairfoundation.org. A fabulous organisation that works with aspiring female entrepreneurs in developing countries.
