He has a track record of advising private equity (PE)-backed technology start-ups on revenue generation and operational scale-up, including the successful guidance of a smart tech startup through its global expansion strategy, which culminated in revenues of approximately £10 million. Fieldwork, the exclusive provider of autonomous raspberry harvesting technology globally, is set to leverage recent funding to reinforce its leading position in the $2.2 billion fresh raspberry industry. This latest government grant, secured within the past six months, reflects the dedication of Fieldwork's team and the tangible impact of its technology.
