We are looking for missions that bring us alive – those that are so motivating we’d have considered joining full-time. We aren’t going to be a detached financier – we’ll only invest when your mission matters to one of us personally and we are compelled to do everything in our power to further your mission.
We will each take on a tiny number of projects each year – 2-3 typically. For each company we partner with, we are able to spend up to a day a week if you need it. You can rely on us to be close enough to deeply understand what is happening with your business and proactively support you vs just turn up to board meetings. For each startup we back we draw up an SLA so we can hold ourselves accountable to being the best possible partner to you.
As a group we have worked with over 10% of the European start-ups valued at over $1b.
In my role as General Counsel, I’m responsible for making sure the legal and compliance mechanics run smoothly behind the scenes at Plural to help the Unemployables focus on what matters most: founders and their companies. I’m a Funds and Deals lawyer by training but have spent the last nearly decade focusing on Venture Capital: at a San Francisco VC fund which ran global accelerator programs, and then as General Counsel at Entrepreneur First, working with hundreds of companies per year. I’m hoping my experience seeing some weird and wonderful things working with multi-jurisdictional companies over the years will come in handy to smooth processes for founders at Plural.
Helping unlock legal bottlenecks (and paperwork!) and reducing friction to make legals the least problematic part of the process. I’m really inspired by Plural’s mission – diverging from the standard VC position and actively helping portfolio companies and transforming the startup ecosystem. I joined Plural because I believe we are doing something different and I’m really excited to see the impact of Plural, breaking the mould and creating new norms of standards. What drives me most though is the idea that Plural is working on transformational missions which will make the world a better place and I hope to assist with that.
