Combining FTSE100 financial services experience and years working for a leading venture development consultancy, Will is well versed in the art of stakeholder communication and harbours a thorough appreciation of the requirements and rationale behind investor decision making.
Operating primarily on the founder side of the fundraising process, Will has assisted over 30 early stage ventures (ranging from pre-seed to Series C) with their respective funding rounds and supported numerous more regarding their commercial strategy and investor readiness. Furthermore, Will has built an extensive network of UK and international HNW and institutional investors, working across venture transactions from £100k up to £10m. This combined experience and network ensure Will is perfectly positioned to support Novo’s clients in the role of Venture Director.
Will comments “It is too often we see founders and startups being advised by individuals that haven’t been through the process themselves so I’m excited to join a firm that prides itself on a strong entrepreneurial backbone.”
