Colin started his career at Clifford Chance in London and Kuwait. After a year at INSEAD, Colin worked with Motorola’s Corporate Business Development Team for 2 years before joining Intel Capital, as part of the founding team in Europe. He spent the next eight years riding the wave of investment activity across the region, with investments in over 20 countries, from seed stage to pre-IPO mezzanine.
Joining the Nestlé Fund in Switzerland, Colin expanded the range of his investment areas from communications, computing and the internet to medical technologies, bio and food technologies, food safety and packaging.
For the last five years, Colin has worked on those areas critical in the development of early-stage companies, particularly in leading emerging markets: he has worked with numerous start-ups in his capacity as an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, financial manager, fund-raiser and legal expert.
In 2014 he worked on developing the Swiss MedTech Accelerator and supported several teams as they sought exits, both successful and aborted. Colin is a regular member of business case juries, the VentureKick jury and a speaker at both training and informational conferences.
