In this episode we talk to Joe Knowles, VC and partner at Smedvig. We learn about the Smedvig approach to investing and make a deep dive into the challenges making that first finance leadership hire.

Joe explains how the CFO role is different from others in the C-suite and how the team at Smedvig seek to persuade founders of the ROI in that hire. He talks through what the investor director looks for in a strategic CFO, and how a focus on ‘hiring-up’, bringing in someone with experience running a Tech business at scale, can so often pay off for their portfolio companies.
