For Barrie Heptonstall's investment at Learn Forward
CEO & Founder of Learn Forward. Background in humanities and a healthy passion for tech. 10 year experience in running online and digital businesses.
Barrie is a great mentor. He asks the right questions and helps with ideas and insights. As a Venture Partner in our Emerge Education accelerator he not only helped us explore the business side of our stay in the UK, but his aid was essential to our set up in London.
It's not the razor sharp focus, nor is the invaluable experience he brings to the table, that make Barrie such a brilliant mentor. It's in fact his contagious way of thinking and aspirational problem solving elegance that brings the best out of everyone involved. Not probably the best mentor we ever had.
Barrie has been a Venture Partner for Emerge Education since 2015 and is one of the most reliable, genuine and helpful people in the startup industry and our founders have greatly benefited from his expertise (and humour!).
