My Mission to Support Startups

Having immersed myself in the startup ecosystem for over a decade, I've gained a 360° perspective of the fundraising journey. I use this to help early-stage tech founders navigate the many challenges that come with building a business.


After co-founding 3 tech companies in my 20s, I went on to run a venture builder and an accelerator program, eventually venturing into capital. I'm currently Managing Partner and Member of the Board at Arkley Brinc VC, investing in early-stage tech startups.

My mission is to help more women establish investable, scalable businesses in the tech sector. As an advocate for gender parity, I love to get involved with initiatives that embolden women to defy expectations through entrepreneurship, pushing for diversity at executive / board level.

With creative roots as a professional singer and writer, I don't fit the typical investor mould. But that's my secret superpower. 

“Bryony's energy and knowledge was stunning... I learned a lot whilst listening to her presentation.”

How I Get Involved

  • Mentoring / workshops for early-stage startup founders. Topics include Investor Relations (how to approach VCs, understanding Term Sheets), Communications (the art of pitching/presentation skills), and Effective Leadership.

  • Speaker / panelist at tech / startup events and conferences. I speak about the topics listed above, as well as IoT and connected hardware, sustainability, Deep Tech, and about my own experiences as a woman founder and investor.

  • Judge / jury member at startup pitch competitions. I'm qualified to give informed feedback on investable business models, pitching skills, team, market, tech, product and strategy.
