“I joined BGF because I wanted to work with ambitious entrepreneurs across a wide range of sectors, helping businesses with equity finance in order to unlock the next phase of growth. Our approach means that we build long-term and meaningful relationships with management teams and the growth nature of the companies we back generally means every week is different which provides great challenge and variety.”
