I am CEO and founder of Candescence a company providing business innovation, entrepreneurship and go to market expertise that creates outstanding commercial impact. I am also Entrepreneur in Residence at SETsquared’s Basingstoke hub and for the University of Surrey’s 5G Test-bed
As Entrepreneur in Residence I work extensively with start-ups and SMEs providing business support, coaching and mentoring. I built the Basingstoke hub from scratch to a now active centre for technology in the region with a support and networking ecosystem wrapped around it. I designed and deliver the SETsquared Entrepreneur Programme, which to date has worked with in excess of 250 start-ups and I lead the 5G SME engagement programme, promoting 5G and the Test-bed in the region.
