The poem Ithaca by the poet Kavafis – Using Odysseus’ long and eventful return journey from Troy, Kavafis signifies the importance of the journey of life and notes that as we try to achieve our goals, it is important to not lose sight of the journey. This journey is what offers us wisdom and makes us rich in experiences, knowledge and maturity to overcome obstacles.

I’m a technologist by heart having studied computer science, and have spent 20+ years in the heart of financial services as a banker and PE growth investor. This cross section has enabled me to invest in innovative technology companies which have solve real business problems whilst experiencing exponential growth.
