Nick is a General Partner at White Star Capital, leading the London office, investing in and working with entrepreneurs across Europe.

In his previous role as Principal at Global Founders Capital, a $1bn stage-agnostic global fund, Nick led and participated in over 30 transactions across four continents. Prior to this, he was an early member of the Skyscape team (now known as UKCloud), during which time the company raised over £20m, and worked with Access Industries backed AINMT to launch a telecoms operator in Brazil. He began his career in the Investment Banking Division at UBS, where he advised telecom clients across corporate finance and M&A.

Nick graduated from the University of Warwick and holds an MBA from London Business School. Raised in Portugal, he speaks both English and Portuguese fluently.

White Star

Having been on the other side of the table, what really stands out to me about White Star Capital is the diversity in backgrounds. The cross-functional expertise leads to very different perspectives on any matter, and being able to learn from others’ experiences is invaluable.
