Helped ex Unilever lead start-up to very leanly test their IOT proposition in the market for under £25k following £300k of ill-advised sunk cost.

A PROVEN ECOSYSTEM BUILDER. Successfully built out growth resources for Oxford Innovation including fruitful relationships with organisations such as Virgin Startup, Google, SAGE, public sector, corporates, investors, academia etc..
