Hello! I’m Christian (he/him),
award-winning queer entrepreneur & innovation strategist in East London… when not fending to my cats, I also:
consult corporates on strategy (via business-model & tech innovation);
build new businesses end-to-end (from seed to scale);
advise & invest in founders (industry agnostic, from pre-seed to series a).
I wear many hats around the world… preferably baseball caps, but also as:
