Gerald has a background in Management Consultancy and academia. A London Business School alumnus with a Doctorate from Oxford University, he has experience of several start-ups and their exits, with considerable experience in building company executive boards, which has led him now to sit on VC investment committees, among other roles.
In 2010, he founded Innovation DB, which links those with novel technologies to those who may wish to commercialise them. IDB offers the world’s largest database of technologies available for license, drawing from around 5,000 academic institutions. Now, in partnership with the UK MOD’s Army Futures Command, IDB is developing military-grade AI code to build a new global data intelligence system, that will feed back into the core product, expanding and enriching it significantly.
