One of our co-founders, Norman leads on B2B software and brings deal lifecycle knowledge and the SaaS playbook to our portfolio. His first investment at Dawn was Mimecast, the European success story that wrote the SaaS and cloud playbooks, and over the course of 20 years as a VC he’s invested in some of Europe’s leading SaaS businesses, including Collibra, Showpad, Quantexa, Garrison, Ably, Gelato and Checkstep.
Before co-founding Dawn, he was a partner (and then owner via an MBO) of the Reuters Greenhouse Fund, Reuters’ global technology venture capital fund. Prior to that, he co-managed Reuters’ corporate technology fund, investing over $450m in over 80 early-, mid- and late-stage companies globally.
Norman is a graduate of Stanford University, with dual BSc and BA degrees in Engineering and Quantitative Economics, and holds an MBA with distinction from Insead.
