“Delighted to have partnered with Andy, since our first meeting he has been incredibly helpful. His insights helped us shape the product and scale our team, using his experience and impressive network of investments / founders”
“Andy is everything you want in an investor: gives excellent advice that comes from first hand experience, tells you when he doesn't know rather than makes stuff up / recycles a blog post he once read, moves quickly, well connected, bis very low maintenance, and always makes himself available when needed. A+.”
“Here's how Andy has helped us: shared truly valuable insight on product (backing it up with real numbers); introduced Togethera to other investors (who joined our round) ; connected us to a journalist in one of the UK's best newspapers who wrote a piece on the company. He's been extremely responsive when I've asked for help, but otherwise lets us get on with work. I would wholeheartedly recommend Andy as an investor and advisor.”
“Andy's experience in building Huddle, his impressive portfolio of investments and his vast network of connections makes him one of our greatest investors and one of the truly valuable startup investors in the US, UK and Europe. But what makes him a great person is his brilliant intellect, his deep care for his companies and the fact that he always has time and great advice for you. I consider our company and specifically myself extremely lucky and privileged to have Andy as an investor, trusted advisor and above all a friend.”
“For our seed round, we weren't after money, we were after expertise, and Andy brought a huge amount of it. He's built a SaaS business, a huge one - and that means that with his help I get to avoid some of the potential mistakes that as an early-stage SaaS founder I'm likely to make. He was quick yet diligent at making sure that our market was significant, and our product was relevant, and after investing made a phenomenal number of introductions. Not only were the people he introduced me to awesome, but the actual introduction e-mails were even more so - whenever people ask me for an example of the perfect introduction e-mail, I always get one of Andy's out. Great investor to have on board - proud to have him on the cap table.”
“Andy is the entire package of what you're looking for in an investor and I feel incredibly lucky to have him on our side. He is a true operator, product thinker, business strategist and friend to the founder. It's awesome working with him and I'm amazed at his range of where he adds value. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to any founder.”
“When fundraising for @bugsnag we wanted to keep the number of angels in the round as low as possible, Andy was one of only 2 angels we went with. Why?
As a proven executor he deeply understands how to scale companies, which is a tremendous value add for any startup. Andy has been amazing at making intros (both requested and organic), was fast in making his investment decision, and follows through with his promises.
Built a European SaaS business from zero that's now worth a decent chunk of change. Since then have been lucky enough to invest in some truly excellent founders and companies. Also: good at reaching high shelves.
