I co-founded Bailey Fisher in 1998 and led the business as Managing Director for 20 years, building boards and management teams for innovative companies across the European technology market, before taking on the role of Executive Chair following a successful exit in 2018.
In 2019, I joined both Cambridge Enterprise and Martlet as Entrepreneur in Residence, helping founders develop their business propositions and commercialise their technologies. Previously, I held advisory roles with NESTA Impact Investments and New Wave Ventures, was a member of the steering committee for the ideaSpace Enterprise Accelerator, on the board of Cambridge Ahead and co-founded the Perse School Enterprise Conference.
I was proud to be selected in the 2016 Maserati 100 list of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs, mentors and advisors supporting the next generation of business talent, and to be named as one of the ‘Most Influential Business People’ in Cambridge in 2017.
Bailey Fisher supported our recent search for a new CEO for GeoSpock, a Cambridge start-up offering real-time extreme scale database & analytics solutions. We were seeking a commercially focused CEO with eBusiness track record to complement the skills of our tech founder. Bailey Fisher conducted a highly professional search, surfacing excellent candidates in a sellers' market. Throughout the process I felt very well supported personally by Paul Bailey and I'm confident that we have hired one of the best candidates available."
