Investment Principal, Samsung Ventures
I chose Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics for my A-level subjects at Westminster and then went on to study Chemistry at Christ Church, University of Oxford, where I earned a First-Class Master’s degree. During my time at Oxford, I interned at Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse and Bayer Healthcare.
I started my career at Goldman Sachs in the TMT (Technology, Media and Telecoms) & Industrials M&A teams.
Now, over a decade since leaving Westminster School, I am an Investment Principal at Samsung Ventures, the $2bn global corporate venture fund of the Samsung group. Being part of their London office, I focus on sourcing, evaluating and investing in promising European tech companies, looking across a range of sectors from biotech to AI to cleantech to find the next unicorn!
Prior to Samsung Ventures I worked at Channel Four Ventures. Joining at its inception, I supported Channel 4 in its new initiative to offer consumer startups TV airtime in exchange for equity, helping entrepreneurs in their journey to becoming household brand names through TV.
