Matthew Jacobs

Investment team

“I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the best leaders and tech entrepreneurs in the UK. They have inspired me to raise the bar in my own career, helping to develop me both personally and professionally.”

I’m part of the new investment team at Livingbridge. My role is focused on finding new investment opportunities, with a particular focus on technology and software companies. It is a great privilege to get the chance to meet and work with such a diverse range of businesses and entrepreneurs.

Since joining Livingbridge I have been involved in a number of investments including Adarma, Quorum Cyber, Giacom, Jensten Group and Carousel Logistics. My career highlight thus far was my involvement with Sykes Cottages; supporting an outstanding CEO and management team to deliver market-leading organic growth and to complete twelve bolt-on acquisitions. I was proud to receive the award for UK mid-market exit of the year in 2019 and enjoy seeing the continued success of Sykes Cottages.

I started my career at PwC in Transaction Services after studying biochemistry at Bristol University. Before joining Livingbridge I also spent two years in a corporate development role at Sainsbury’s.

Music is my main escape from work. I’ll listen to pretty much anything but have a particular affinity for ’90s hip hop, drum & bass and house music. My dreams of becoming a superstar DJ are on hold whilst I juggle the competing priorities of work and fatherhood.
