Our people

The team that founded Mashauri to make a real impact on the world economy

They met at IE Business School in 2012.

Simon had had a long-time dream of finding a new, technology-based way to provide top class strategy services to entrepreneurs and small businesses.

Victor had a passion for using data and digital techniques to disrupt traditional ways of doing things.

Together, they founded Mashauri to link the dream with the passion in a way that they believe will make a real impact on the world economy through increasing the success rate of entrepreneurs.

But these are just the instigators of the idea. The full team includes the complement of mentors around the world who are as enthusiastic about helping new businesses launch and achieve success. It includes our investor community who apply their resources in supporting entrepreneurs. It includes the hubs, business schools and accelerators who have been at the forefront of this revolution. And, of course, our community of entrepreneurs who help each other as well as themselves.
