Emily is a Physicist by training, holding a Bachelors and Masters in Physics from the University of Bath.
As part of our Deep Tech team, she passionately supports Deep Tech companies and the ecosystem, and always strives to give scientific credibility to the VC side of the table. Understanding that key enabling technologies can sometimes get lost behind the walls of academia, she is excited the most by helping founders take their technology out of the lab and into the real world.
Before joining Speedinvest, Emily worked for Fraunhofer IZM, as well as a software engineering startup where she first caught the startup bug. She then worked at Spin Up Science where she specifically supported innovators on their Deep Tech commercialization journeys. She draws upon this experience everyday to sharpen her Deep Tech lens.
