Conor Scanlan

Conor sits in the Consumer and Growth pods, focusing on deal origination, execution and due diligence activity as well as portfolio company development.

Prior to joining Octopus Ventures in 2020, Conor was a Principal at Frog Capital, a European scale-up stage technology investor, where he led UK deal origination and worked with several companies including Azimo, SHE Software and Vulog. He also spent 4 years at Arma Partners, where he advised on several high-profile European technology transactions, including the sales of Momondo, CarTrawler and Metrologic.

Conor graduated from the University of York with a degree in Economics. Outside of work, he is a keen sports fan, and while failing miserably at rekindling his former sporting mediocrities, you can now find him attempting to watch football and rugby in as many countries as possible or falling over on his snowboard too many times to count.
