About

Hey there, I’m Andy – an American living in London. Once in a while I’ll have a thought about tech stuff, startups, or rum. When I do I’ll write it here.


My bio for when speaking:

Andy is a Partner and the Global Head of Startupbootcamp. Since joining in 2012, Andy led Startupbootcamp to become one of the world’s most active early stage investors, with over 400 portfolio companies, and grew the organization from 3 to 21 offices across 15 countries.

Andy has held multiple startup operating and technology commercialization roles in addition to working with both angel and tech transfer groups. He previously managed a large family office where as CEO he led the exit of portfolio company ExpenseMagic. Prior to this Andy was a Fellow at the early stage VC Seedcamp, and the head of sales and marketing at a number of startups.

Andy received his BA from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and MBA from Imperial College London, where he continues to lecture on topics such as entrepreneurship, finance, and innovation.
