F&F Season 4 Episode 4 – Oliver Hammond of Fuel Ventures

In a punchy, direct episode, we hear from Oli Hammond at Fuel Ventures, one of the fastest growing UK VC investors in the Seed space. Oli is a talented VC and has a super eye for spotting a lot of the latest Tech Gems, in the UK Early Stage space.

By means of background, Oli joined the fund from Syndicate Room, an interesting Cambridge based investor, whom Chris worked with at Bloomberg, when Oli and the SR attended a lot of the leading showcaser events Notwics delivered there.  Prior to this he cut his teeth in Corporate land, working for Svenska Handelsbanken, which determined life as a “suit” was not for him

In this episode of FUNDstars and FOUNDstars, Oli tells us about:
# Fuel and its phenomenal growth
# The culture and approach of Fuel – with their SEIS and EIS focus
# Their successes so far and what Fuel are looking for by vertical (especially Travel-Tech!!)
# How they scout their founders

And many many more golden nuggets, which help explain why Fuel Ventures is becoming a winner amongst the ebullient Seed funding space in the UK.. listen and watch on ..
