I am the CEO and founding partner of CrescoData; A Platform-as-a-Service business that helps automate the commerce ecosystem. After a degree from LSE and a masters from City university, I worked in both the public and private sector for over 18 years in commercial and product roles across Europe and Australasia. Roles included Director of Investment UKTI, Head of Mobile Yahoo!7 and Mobile Web Product Manager Vodafone. In 2003 I founded Tigerspike, a mobile techonology company and was an investor and advisor to the company for 13+ years.
After moving to Singapore in 2012, I mentored on the start-up scene and founded CrescoData after witnessing the emergence in marketplaces in South East Asia and a lack of automation. CrescoData now works with customers in Europe, SE Asia and Australasia and The CrescoData Platform processes over 1,200 merchants and over USD20M orders per month.
Having first hand experience founding two businesses, I know that having a mentor and sounding board that’s been through a similar journey and faced similar challenges is very helpful. If Lucy can make life easier for women to start and grow businesses that is invaluable. Providing women with the means to start and grow their own business has proven beneficial not only to their own family but to the community as a whole..
