I’m an entrepreneur turned investor and currently a GP at Notion Capital, a venture capital firm focused on B2B SaaS/Cloud.Before Notion I co-founded, built and exited three businesses with my brother Ben – RBR Networks, Star and MessageLabs. Star was one of the UK’s first ISP’s and was acquired by Claranet for $88m. MessageLabs, founded in 2000, was the first company in the world to deliver anti-virus and anti-spam in the cloud and apply a more data driven, predictive approach to identifying malware. In 2008 MessageLabs was acquired by Symantec for $700m, a landmark transaction in the emerging software-as-a service (so called ‘SaaS’) sector. In 2009, I co-founded Notion with three other partners to invest in the B2B SaaS/Cloud market across Europe. We feel that our experience of scaling a large, global SaaS business gives us an ‘unfair advantage’ for evaluating deals and supporting our portfolio companies. Notion now has more than $300m in funds under management and an exciting portfolio of companies. I’m also an angel investor mainly into New York start-ups where I lived for 14 years - investments include Bench, Gamechanger (sold to Dicks Sporting Goods), Justworks, Splash, The Book of Everyone, Tripplemint, Tyme and Tylko.I now live in London with my beautiful wife, Annabel, and my wonderful three children Freddie, Ophelia and Sammy. When I’m not working I love running, reading, golf and cooking. But most of all I love to spend time with my family and to see my kids with a smile on their face and a twinkle in their eye.
