Jon is an investor at Mott MacDonald Ventures, a previous CFO-in-a-box consultant, and a trained engineer. His current focus at Mott is to support and invest in founders focused on tackling the world’s most pressing challenges, including urbanisation, climate change and infrastructure optimisation. His specific interest areas include technologies targeted towards smart cities, urban tech, clean energy, and construction (though, the list goes on). Previously, while running a consulting practice, Jon leveraged his financial expertise to help start-ups build robust financial models and navigate VC, angel and crowd-based fundraising. He is always eager to engage founders, from any industry, to provide casual advice or to simply chat technology.
