Georg is CEO of Smoothwall, a dedicated safeguarding technology provider in UK education. Prior to joining the business in 2018, he was Tesla’s Director for Western Europe and served as General Manager, EMEA for Yammer, acquired by Microsoft for $1.2B.
Smoothwall was our first investment from Fund I. In August 2021, we sold our stake to Family Zone, an Australian headquartered cyber safety software provider, generating a return of 5.6x invested capital and a 56% IRR.
During the investment cycle, Georg led on multiple acquisitions and delivered many product innovations, whilst his team were awarded Three Stars in the Sunday Times’ “Best Companies to Work For” and recognised as a Top 100 Employer.
