Contributions to InnovationPeople and their environment
Venture Capital & Disruption
Its based on significant personal experience in ventures, being part of both organic and funding driven businesses that Andrew Cuthbert together with Gavan Wall chose to bring a hand picked trusted team together to become “The Change”. We have a unique offering that targets those with a vision on fundamental global change. Concepts that we nurture to become multi-billion dollar profitable enterprises, engraining our entrepreneurs with billionaire mindsets.
Within the change I combine my passion for “the fourth sector,” and change making, with profit making enterprises bringing specialist expertise to bare on behalf of start up and scale up entrepreneurs.
Through the Change I work with a significant number of partner companies.
