PE & VC Group
Digitalisation – opportunity or disruption?
Wednesday 28 June

This event is supported by Debevoise & Plimpton

Is digitalisation a venture capital opportunity and / or a private equity disruption?
Which will adapt better to the fast-moving world of tech, venture capital firms or private equity? Greg Marsh, former leader of Index Ventures and founder of onefinestay, will look at what equity fund managers need to do to stop tech-savvy entrepreneurs disrupting their companies.

Greg Marsh worked on the technology investment team at venture capital firm Index Ventures until a trip to Pisa in 2009 inspired him to leave and start onefinestay, a pioneering hospitality business that lets travellers enjoy hotel services in beautiful homes while the owners are out of town. Onefinestay was bought by AccorHotels in 2016 for more than $250m.

Greg has an MA in philosophy from Cambridge, and an MBA from Harvard. He has invested in a number of start-ups and is on the advisory boards of APCOA, Europe’s leading car park operator, and organic babyfood business, Pumpkin. He is on the Finance and Audit Committee of Amnesty International, is a Visiting Professor at Imperial College Business School and has been appointed to the UK government’s advisory panel for the Review of Employment Practices in the Modern Economy.
