Corporate Development & Venture Project Management

Helping investors and fast-growing companies research, plan and explore new markets, industries and growth opportunities.

Based in London via Moscow and Stockholm, I help Venture Capital investors and fast-growing companies clarify and quantify market opportunities, lead expansion and investment projects, and ultimately head establishment and expansion projects.

What I do builds on 15+ years of directing research, investment and growth projects in new and emerging markets and sectors; where the approach involves strategy research, corporate development, product management and project management. What I do is very much of laying jigsaw puzzles where the pieces are capital, technology, markets, people, products and processes that have to be identified, acquired, tuned, shaped and catalyzed to form new and fast-growing companies.

Read more below about what I do and who I am; and feel free to reach out to me to discuss projects and engagements. Thank you.


What I Do

Corporate Development & Venture Project Management

  • Researching and evaluating emerging markets, technology areas and sectors.

  • Sourcing and deal origination for M&A and Venture Capital investments.

  • Defining business establishment, growth and scale-up strategies.

  • Directing strategy implementation projects (Corporate Development).

For VC investors I help to analyse and map industries and emerging technology spheres, clarify investment and growth opportunities, identify companies and source deals, and turn insights and opportunities into actionable plans and positions.

For Fast-Growing Companies I help to analyse markets and opportunities, test concepts and develop growth strategies, plan and manage investment and scale-up projects, and implement and head growth and venture projects.

Helped Proximate, a seed VC funded Edge data center company, define their strategy, build their financial model, raise capital and source M&A deals.

Helped Xllnc expand into new countries by taking lead of their market entry strategy and establishments.

About Me

Working at the edge of technology development with market, strategy and investment questions is my passion and what I've come to specialise in over the years. (Click text to expand.)

What I do build on my experience leading, planning and evaluating venture projects, but also on my background in management consulting and directing (CFO, Corporate Developer, Venture Partner, Board Member) of fast-growing companies.

Since 2020 I work on a freelance basis. As part of my work as a freelancer I serve as Head of Investor and Partner Relations for the company Proximate - an Edge data center venture focused on building next-generation digital infrastructure across Europe.

I have an M.Sc. in Business and Economics from the University of Stockholm, Sweden; in addition to being a certified Business Analyst (BCS) and Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO).

When not working, I’m an avid cyclist and runner who enjoys reading, cooking and caring for my wife and our two children. Also, building on my interest in strategy and technology, I have written the book The Rise of Industrial 3D-Printing, which at the time of its publishing gained industry recognition and proceeded to become a recommended industry book to read.
