A chartered marketer (MCIM) with a global MBA, I am currently pursuing a PhD in Entrepreneurship focusing on investor behaviour in the context of equity crowdfunding. Teaching all things digital is part of the journey. I blog on how entrepreneurial finance can foster a more sustainable and inclusive form of economic growth at thisisoliver.co

“People around the world are coming up with ideas on how to solve some of the problems and challenges we’ve faced in the last few weeks. For a lot of people, there’s a lot of time on their hands to do research, there’s a lot of thinking time. It is a perfect time to be doing that.”
