Nicholas Sando

Nick joined Octopus Ventures in 2018 and, as part of the Fintech team, focuses on investments in financial services, insurance, blockchain and credit/lending.

Nick has 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.
