I'm Simon and I'm passionate about working with early-stage companies on commercial questions of strategy, product, sales and marketing. I've been around the block working with corporates, venture and start-ups in both the US and Europe and so have seen a thing or two over the years.
As well as supporting Seedcamp portfolio companies as an EiR, I'm co-founder and partner at Best Practice AI, a London-based AI executive advisory that helps companies accelerate their AI plans and solutions.
I have over 20 years of experience leading digital transformations through technology, data science, and AI. I co-founded MapQuest, one of the early internet brand and unicorns; spent over 10 years as chief digital officer leading the transformation of media companies for private equity; and consulted or worked for companies including HomeAdvisor Europe, AOL, Bowers & Wilkins, and Accenture.
As well as being highly active in the AI startup community, I'm a sometimes angel investor, co-president of the Harvard Business School Alumni Angels of London and an advisor and former venture partner at DN Capital. I have an MBA from the Harvard Business School and a BA in computing and artificial intelligence from the University of Sussex.
