Founding Director, Innovyz and Innovyz Institute
Co-Founder, SME Growth Capital
Stuart is the Founding Director of Innovyz & Innovyz Institute. He also co-founded SME Growth Capital and a self-professed Habitual Entrepreneur.
Having started and grown a company several times, Stuart became interested in the process of identifying, funding, and then commercialising breakthrough ideas and innovations. Stuart initially co-founded SME Growth Capital to help companies get the capital they needed for growth.
Recognising that entrepreneurship and innovation require knowledge and skills from a variety of disciplines, Stuart also co-founded the Alliance for Innovation, a collaboration of highly respected service providers, financial institutions and universities that can help accelerate the growth of Innovyz’s client companies.
“I only wish I had had access to a company like Innovyz when I was growing my companies. Having experts, mentors and service providers working with a company founder to chart the quickest path to success, advise about which funding option to pursue, and then provide assistance with the trade sale should enable more companies to be successful, more quickly.”
