Prior to Seedcamp, Tom studied Economics and Law and worked for a large international law firm in London where he specialised in VC fundraising and M&A. Tom has always been fascinated by technology and building companies so when the opportunity came up to move over to the investing side with Seedcamp in 2014 he jumped at it!

Seedcamp fast-tracks a founder’s vision and creates value through immediate access to smart capital, a lifelong community of support and a global network built upon a decade’s experience backing exceptional talent.
