“Working with Will on the Grindstone accelerator has been brilliant. From our first meeting to every further interaction Will has always brought a fresh perspective that has been valuable to us. He continues to connect us with key people for our development and has been a great support and sounding board when we have needed it. Being a first-time founder, I couldn’t have asked to be working with a better coach.”

“I first met Will during our application into the Grindstone programme and immediately caught onto his great energy. He was super friendly and easy going. As we progressed further, Will has proven to be someone who has great knowledge of sales, an experienced entrepreneur and takes the time to provide expert advice and knowledge. He takes the time to connect with you individually, really understand your needs and challenges as a start-up, and help us grow in our journey. Very grateful to have him in our ecosystem.”

“I can only give my highest praise to Will. His understanding of Technology Start-Ups and Scale-Ups is second to none and has a great eye for both marketing and commercialization. His knowledge and network of the entrepreneurial landscape across Funders (VC’s, Angles, Corporate VC’s) is vast and actionable. It has been wonderful working with Will as his energy, passion and positive perspective have been essential to us maintaining our course toward our venture “true north”. We at Turing Insights can only say thank you and would recommend other ventures or corporates to leverage your skillset.”
