Living our values

“We want to be like the kind of growth companies the Funds invest in – constantly iterating and improving. So ‘learn, adapt and grow’ is close to my heart.
However, what resonates most is having ‘impact through insight and tenacity’. This is what enables us to develop conviction, win over entrepreneurs, and help them achieve their goals. It is what makes me excited to come to work every day.”



Mark's Story

Mark loves figuring out how things work, and brainstorming thorny problems with ambitious management teams.
He was attracted to Apax by the talented yet humble people, and the opportunity not just to invest in start-ups but also to craft one – building out a new growth team in Europe.
In his spare time, when not ice swimming, sword fighting, or karaoke singing (badly), he enjoys dark comedies and Korean gangster films.
