James Shrager
I work closely with founders and exec teams; supporting them in a variety of capacities across strategy, execution, fundraising and operations.
My diverse career has enabled me to develop a broad but deep skill set covering proposition and product development, strategy, software engineering and finance.
I started my career at PwC, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in their Business Recovery and Debt Advisory practices.
I then learnt to code, taking two iPhone games from concept through to sale with one of them achieving over 20m downloads worldwide.
Most recently I spent 6 years working in strategy & innovation consulting, supporting clients across multiple sectors to identify growth opportunities, develop new business models and take their products to market.
I pride myself on being authentic, straight talking, dependable, diligent and curious in everything I do.
