“Our future is being shaped by our entrepreneurs. Everyday, audacious founders are effecting change with their drive and passion. Supporting them in this journey is a privilege.”
I really enjoy working alongside visionary founders from the earliest stages of their entrepreneurial journey, witnessing the birth of groundbreaking companies. Entrepreneurs have the sharp ability of distilling a core consumer insight usually by being “Customer First” and “Problem First”. I love working with founders in identifying these insights and partnering with them in their pursuit of creating and delivering value.
As an early stage investor, the most rewarding aspect of my work is meeting tenacious, passionate, and driven founders on a daily basis. Each day, I am inspired by the boundless possibilities that the future holds - fuelled by the unwavering determination of founders. Having a front row seat to all of it unravelling and getting the opportunity to partner with them is the icing on the cake !!
