James Scoon

Investment team

“I am incredibly fortunate to work alongside entrepreneurs and management teams at an exciting stage in their company’s growth”

My role within the new investment team is primarily meeting management teams to learn about their business and circumstance. We seek to understand the team’s aspirations for the business and how Livingbridge may be able to help achieve those goals.

Having graduated from Oxford University, I started my career at Capita Scaling Partner (“CSP”), the corporate venturing arm of Capita plc. CSP partner with high-growth businesses to develop their propositions into scalable enterprises and accelerate their growth plans. Here I was lucky to work with, and learn from, incredible entrepreneurs, each disrupting their respective sectors.

Growing up in the Lake District, I have a passion for the outdoors and often escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a day out on the fells. I am also an enthusiastic yet very amateur sportsman, playing football each week, and skiing (rather ungracefully) each winter.
