Startup Dads podcast with David Grimm
by David Grimm
David Grimm, Investment Director at the UCL Technology Fund chats to Amrit Santhirasenan, host of Startup Dads.
David Grimm’s move into the world of entrepreneurship was highly unconventional. A chance meeting in China during his gap year led him to find out about the problems faced by dairy farmers, and years later, he quit his job in consultancy to form a solution. A bold move, and one that ultimately didn’t pan out due to government regulation. However, this experience gave him a unique perspective to bring to the other side of the table, in his current role as Investment Director at UCL Technology Fund. He discusses how to be an empathetic investor, and why we should encourage curiosity in our kids and co-workers.
