EX VC AND FOUNDER NOW HELPING START-UPS WITH GROWTH & FUNDRAISING
In 2016, Luke exited ReChannel, thee-commerce platform for wholesale he founded 4 years ago - they raised over £1m from leading angel investors, processed over £10m of orders from fashion brands including Finery, Cambridge Satchel and Sunspel, and exited to a competitor. Luke learned a lot about growing a B2B SaaS platform and the challenges involved in building an integrated solution. Luke had previously worked at Zouk Ventures, the £500m London-based VC who have invested in iZelttle, Taulia and many others. Luke’s career began after Oxford University at Aberdeen Asset Management, where he worked mainly as a US Equities Analyst in Philadelphia.
Luke currently works as a consultant for a number of start-ups, including the fintech platform Capitalise, which helps SMEs quickly find the right business loans. Luke is also the Entrepreneur-in-Residence at CoralReef.io, who invest £100k - £200k in early-stage businesses before their Series A round.
