ANGEL INVESTING

 

As an angel investor, my mission is to support seed and pre-seed visionary founders who are committed to creating positive, lasting change in the world. My focus is on investments that while being good businesses have societal benefits and have a clear, meaningful mission. I believe that products can be a powerful force for good and that profitability and positive impact are not mutually exclusive.

IMPACTFUL PRODUCTS

My investments are directed toward products that have a tangible, positive impact on society.

A few examples of my interests:

01.

Fair, Ethical and Safe AI

02.

Healthcare and Drug Development

03.

Climate Technology

04.

Education and Skill Development

05.

Safety, Fraud, Identity

Don't match any of the above, but think your product will change the world for the better?

I'd still love to hear from you.

ETHOS & AMBITION

The companies I invest in must have a clear and compelling mission that aligns with these principles:

Mission-Driven Leadership: Founders who are passionate about their mission and demonstrate a deep commitment to making a positive impact.

Long-Term Vision: Companies with a long-term vision for sustainable growth and impact, rather than short-term gains.

Scalability: Solutions that have the potential to x100 not only in value but also societal impact.

CAPITAL

I was fortunate to have been an early employee of Onfido. Through my six year tenure, I accumulated significant equity, that proved fruitful when Onfido exited for £650m in April 2024. This was biggest VC exit in the UK in the past two years and the largest UK fintech acquisition since Dec 2021.

 

I use the proceeds of the sale to reinvest into the ecosystem that has nurtured my career.

 

I invest through Ventures Together, an angel syndicate of the best operators in Europe. While my personal ticket size is modest, you can expect to raise £20k to £100k through Ventures Together as multiple angels chip in. We keep cap tables clean by being a single entity. 

INVESTMENTS TO DATE

I started angel investing in May 2024. As part of Ventures Together I review two deals a week.
