My Story


"...the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.. and one fine morning — So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Max is one of the youngest VC investors in Europe – and certainly the most dedicated. Our sensei of all things blockchain and decentralised tech (holding almost the entirety of his net worth in cryptoassets), Max previously worked with our friends at Mosaic Ventures,, and Mangrove Capital Partners, prior to which he went through 3 years of Engineering at Imperial College.

Thing we’ve learnt about Max, is that once you get his word on something, you can trust that it will be completed. Whether it’s a deal that needs to close or a promise made to a founder, he will ensure the work is done… Sometimes we wonder whether he’s just using that as an excuse to avoid swimming ‘because the gym has closed by the time he goes home’.

Max loves French music (singing included), and can sit through a 9-hour-long silent movie. He is also the author of the infamous “The Rise of the Token Sale”.
