Denis RyanHead of Governance and Investments
With a strong background in finance, having spent 9 years working as a lender / SME relationship manager. A funding background enables me to contextualise a technology build within the growth capital lifecycle. While working in retail banking I was involved in setting up an innovation portfolio to support the delivery of banking solutions (FX, Bank Finance, Cash Management, AML) to High Potential Technology startup Companies that needed to scale quickly. This experience gave me a strong understanding of the technology funding ecosystem and the challenges tech startups face.
