Lucy Clarke

Lucy joined Octopus Ventures in September 2020 and will be focusing primarily on later stage investments, both within the current OV portfolio and with regard to new opportunities, particularly in the fintech space. Lucy is passionate about backing pioneers who are making financial services more inclusive and transparent.

“Technology presents us with opportunities for making the world a better place. I am so excited to be spending time working with founders at the forefront of these changes, those who are every day challenging the status quo and pushing boundaries”

Prior to joining OV, Lucy worked in the Investment Banking division at Goldman Sachs covering a range of sectors, spending time in both the UK Corporate Broking and Equity Capital Markets team and within M&A Advisory. Her experience across almost four years included advising private and public companies on their options for raising capital and M&A transactions.

Lucy studied Classics at Oxford University and outside of work, Lucy loves travelling, prioritising the best scuba diving spots. She has also volunteered in conservation and sustainability.
