Nicholas Sando

Nick joined Octopus Ventures in 2018 and focuses on investments in financial services, insurance, blockchain and credit/lending. Having an entrepreneurial background, he is passionate about working with founders to rapidly scale up their businesses.

Prior to joining Octopus, Nick co-founded companies on both sides of the Atlantic. In London, Nick launched Mojo, a SaaS platform for the beauty and wellness industry. Prior to that, Nick started SnagTag, a New York based retail platform which focused on improving the shopper experience through near field communication enabled clothing labels.

“Co-founding two businesses has provided a crash course in company building: we had successes, failures, raised funding, and exited, all in a short space of time.”Nick holds a double major in Finance and Economics from the University of Miami School of Business. Outside of investing, Nick is a keen footballer (still chasing the dream) and enjoys kitesurfing or skiing, depending on the season.
