Our goal is to help you to build the most exciting, forward-thinking business and we thrive on playing a key role in your long-term success.

We have in excess of 20 years experience helping to build high-growth and investor-backed businesses across the UK through a range of specialist services, e.g. executive search, recruitment, HR consultancy, etc.

We champion the importance of building high calibre teams and we are sensitive to the pressures that early-stage and high-growth businesses face.

We equally recognise the needs of the investment community, who often need to enhance the management teams of their portfolio businesses and do not have the time or the resources available to manage this effectively.

Our approach is designed to provide the level of service often only afforded by the larger, more established companies, along with flexibility to ensure that as your business develops and requirements change, we can quickly adapt to your needs.

Our high calibre team has developed an impeccable track record, working with many of the UK’s VCs, business angels and private investors and providing long term strategic support to clients in:

  • Life sciences
  • ICT
  • Electronics
  • Engineering
  • Material Sciences
  • Energy
  • Energy/Cleantech
  • Professional Services
  • Media

Sam studied politics at university and has a background in project management and implementing ISO systems. As a senior consultant, she now uses these skills to make sure that all the projects she works on are delivered to a very high quality and a tight timescale. She has a track record of successful delivery, and consistently high levels of customer satisfaction.

Sam heads up university spin outs, partnering universities with commercial advisors and mentors who can take an idea with potential and guide it through a validation process; assessing the intellectual property, the technology itself and the wider commercial and market opportunity whilst shaping the business strategy. Sam helps to open doors for piloting and partnership opportunities, so licensing deals can be pursued beyond that.

The technology being commercialised spans a variety of sectors and products being developed sometimes come not only from academics within the university, but lone developers and inventors or clinicians in the NHS

She is dedicated and tenacious and does not stop until she finds the perfect match for the clients that she works with.
