Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
If you’re a start-up, or a small business looking to grow you’ve come to the right place. It’s an exciting place to be and I’m happy to share my expertise with you. I’m currently directing a wide portfolio of ventures including start-ups ranging from property to Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG). If there’s a common thread that ties these projects together, and it’s the application of my personal business philosophy.
I firmly believe that the entrepreneurial drive is innate; and it’s so important to foster this spirit in any entrepreneur, young or old, looking to start up or grow their business.
Every entrepreneur can accelerate their business growth by gaining access to the resources and knowledge they need, and here’s where it starts for you.
I’m an investor, as well as a Thought Leader and Connector and I’m happy to make public appearances and share how my business philosophy enables me not only to facilitate successful ventures.
I now only focus on pre-seed investments. That means businesses that are just at the idea stage. It’s the most risky stage and an area most investors, even early stage investors will not consider, but at the same time is the most creative and the stage that I feel most challenged as an active investor. It’s hugely satisfying seeing something that was just an idea getting a foothold in its target market.
I see my investments and the experience and know how we bring to start-ups as providing a platform for them to achieve their goals.
My investment is available to any entrepreneur with a great idea which needs launching. It is open to start-ups in all sectors and to people of all ages.
I am particularly looking for ventures that offer something new, rather than those that simply reinvent the same wheel; ventures that target niche markets, rather than those that seek to ‘improve’ what’s on offer. Most importantly, I am looking to invest in people with the passion to make their business happen – for me that’s more fundamental than the actual idea or stage of the business.
Finally, being very entrepreneurial in my outlook on investments, I am not risk-averse. That means I probably enjoy backing the more riskier ventures over those that simply offer the safest ROI. However, although I am not risk-averse, I strongly believe that the person or team I am investing in should have, as Warren Buffet coined the phrase, skin in the game.
So, if you’ve got a great business or business idea that needs funding CALL ME NOW! Let’s see if we can make it happen together!
