What attracted you to Dawn and B2B software?
Dawn
Dawn is on an incredible journey, with an engaged team, and an exciting portfolio — I am so thrilled to be part of this! From someone that doesn’t really have the deepest of tech backgrounds, B2B Software can seem a little hard to digest. However, the industry is a huge enabler and the stories behind the portfolio companies are fascinating.
How do you think about the role of brand and community building in driving the success of a business?
Dawn
As the role of the community within venture capital has evolved, community building and brand awareness are vital – your community is an enormous asset and sits at the heart of a brand. The way in which you communicate will ensure you foster that community, increasing engagement and sustaining trust. I believe that, in order to drive brand awareness, it is... essential to market in a way that your desired audience can associate themselves with you. And of course this all must be aligned to the brands identity and aims.
