Our Approach

Dr Nuno Arroteia

Founder and Managing Partner at Startup Finance Ltd.

I bring to our approach my extensive industry experience in operations management and business development at multinational companies such as Arthur Andersen, Deloitte, UEFA, and Carglass.

I am also a serial Angel investor with a portfolio across a diverse range of sectors (ICT, creative industries, life sciences, industrial production).

More recently I have also been involved in teaching international business, research methods and international entrepreneurship to undergraduate, postgraduate and corporate students.

I know the theory, the practice and the difficulties of starting, growing and managing a technology business.

In my practical approach to helping your business to grow, I rely on my knowledge and experience, but also supported by the latest cutting edge research in the field, to ensure that you will not make the same mistakes that someone else did, and ensure that you will achieve your objectives.

Thank you for your trust in us.
